The City of Everett Cultural Arts Commission is accepting applications for cultural arts grants to fund art programs in 2023. The City will award up to $40,000 in grants for 2023.

Cultural arts grants are awarded to organizations expanding access to arts and culture within the City of Everett that reflect the community’s values ​​of equity, inclusion, and diversity.

Arts organizations, artists and community organizations that offer arts programs and services, and meet the eligibility requirements, are invited to apply. All grant-funded projects must take place within Everett city limits and be open to the general public.

“I’m pleased we’re once again able to offer this grant program, which helps expand access to arts and culture in our community,” said Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin. “I encourage eligible artists and organizations to apply and look forward to the creative new works and programs this round of grants will fund.”

In the past, grants have supported youth arts education, neighborhood community art projects and live music performances. A 2022 grant provided funding for public art in a neighborhood park, another funded instruments for low-income public school band students.

Grant applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or be fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit to apply.
