CITY ARTS GRANTS

The City Arts Grants program is designed to provide financial support for arts programs and projects in Salt Lake City.

Access the ONLINE GRANTS PROCESS system here

There are currently two City Arts Grants categories accepting submissions from eligible applicants, each with eligibility standards, guidelines, and review criteria. The Salt Lake City Arts Council Board places a priority on those programs that best reflect the Arts Council’s mission and values.

City Arts Grants can support only those programs and projects which take place within Salt Lake City limits. Review Salt Lake City boundaries here: https://www.slc.gov/council/about-us/find-your-council-member/

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 Grants is made at the sole discretion of the Salt Lake City Arts Council and the decision of the board is final.

ALL CITY ARTS GRANT APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED ONLINE. PAPER COPIES OR EMAILED PDF DOCUMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
