The City of Vancouver will accept applications for this year’s culture, arts, and heritage grants starting Wednesday, February 19, 2020.
Grant funding totaling $150,000 is available to non-profit or government organizations in Vancouver in 2020. Eligible projects include performances, exhibitions, special events, infrastructure improvements and professional development programming.
Applications should demonstrate high artistic quality, innovation and creativity and should reflect, celebrate, and preserve the heritage and diversity found in our community.
Applications must be submitted online at the City of Vancouver Culture, Arts & Heritage Grant Program. The deadline to submit an application for funding is 3:00 PM April 8, 2020, with recipients announced in early July. Projects or programs receiving grant funding must be completed by December 31, 2021.
“Arts, culture and heritage programs can benefit almost every part of our lives, from the vibrancy and economic prosperity of our city to our health and wellbeing, in addition to enhancing the unique character and identity of our city,” said Vancouver Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle.
Interested applicants are encouraged to attend one of two scheduled workshops to learn more about the grant process and guidelines. Workshops will take place at 6:00 PM February 26 and 4:00 PM March 5 at Vancouver City Hall, 415 W. Sixth St., Vancouver.
