FY21 Community Arts Grants
Community Investments and Engagement and Project Support Grants were recommended for funding by the Arts and Culture Commission, but won’t be approved by City Council until August. This is due to the uncertainty nature of the FY21 general fund budget. Award notifications will be sent out in late August after any budget adjustments are made to the Office of Arts and Culture's budget. Please review this grants/budget correspondence that was sent out before review panels commenced. https://conta.cc/2XQ2vuz
Arts and Culture Coronavirus Relief Program
The Phoenix City Council approved using $2.6 million in federal Coronavirus Relief Funding to help artists, along with nonprofit arts and culture organizations, hurting financially because of the global health emergency.
The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture administered a program that offered three components including:
grants to individual artists support working artists, teaching artists, and other artist-based contract workers that have experienced canceled events and residencies or terminated contracts because of the COVID-19 pandemic
one-time emergency relief grants to arts and cultural nonprofits that lost earned and contributed revenue because of Coronavirus; and
funds for technical assistance to the field to conduct workshops, webinars, and resources that would help nonprofit arts and culture organizations and individual artists navigate their financial futures moving forward into the new normal.
