City Arts Grants

The City Arts Grants are designed to provide financial support for arts programs and projects in Salt Lake City that merit public funding. There are five City Arts Grants Categories, each with its own eligibility standards, guidelines, and review criteria.

Because City Arts Grants are supported with public tax dollars, the board places a priority on those programs that best reflect the Arts Council’s mission and serve the residents of Salt Lake City. City Arts Grants can support only those programs and projects which take place within Salt Lake City limits.

The City Arts Grants program is competitive and includes a rigorous application review process. A newly completed application must be submitted each year and a grant award in one year does not guarantee an award for the following year. The award of City Arts Grant funds is made at the sole discretion of the Salt Lake City Arts Council and the decision of the board is final
