Local art and culture projects happening over the next year are eligible to receive funding through grants from the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board.

The board is accepting grant proposals for events and projects taking place Dec. 1-Sept. 30, 2018 involving art, music, theater and culture heritage events and projects. Nonprofit organizations, schools, informal groups and individual artists who create public art or are holding events open to the public are all eligible, according to a city statement.

Fine arts librarian Dana Hendrix said the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board has not set a maximum amount for the current round of grants. In the previous round of grants, $20,000 was awarded overall.

Grant proposals must be submitted by midnight Sept. 30 and include contact information, a description and purpose of the event or project, the amount requested, a budget, date and location information, admission charge and anticipated attendance, as well as size and demographic makeup of past participants or audiences.

According to the city statement, special consideration will be given for applications that offer free admission, reach out to underrepresented populations and have a cultural tourism or economic impact.

Organizations will be notified of funding decisions via email by Oct. 31. More information is available at arts.georgetown.org/grants.
