Cultural Fund Grant Applications Due April 1

 Arts organizations are invited to apply to the City of Evanston’s Cultural Fund Grant Program. The Cultural Fund, administered by the Evanston Arts Council, supports artistic excellence throughout the community by providing financial assistance to not-for-profit arts organizations for operational costs or projects. Applications must be submitted online at cityofevanston.org/culturalfund by 5 p.m.  April 1.

The City will award a total of $30,000 in grants in the following two categories: Grants to Organizations, awards up to $5,000; and Special Programs and Projects, awards up to $5,000. Applicants may apply for only one  grant category.
All projects must take place in Evanston to be eligible for a grant.

There will be a free grant-writing workshop offered specifically for the Cultural Fund Grant Program. All applicants are encouraged to attend the session, to be held 4-6 p.m. on Feb. 27 at the Morton Civic Center, Room 2402, 2100 Ridge Ave. Anyone needing  special considerations, such as sign language interpretation or Braille translation, may call 847-859-7833 at least one week prior to the meeting date.

The Cultural Fund Grant application must be completed and submitted online only. This allows applicants to easily submit financial records and supporting documents, as well as save progress throughout the application process.

All information about the grants, guidelines and applications can be found by visiting cityofevanston.org/culturalfund. Questions should be sent to Assistant to the City Manager Paulina Martínez at pmartinez@cityofevanston.org.

The goal of the Cultural Fund Grant Program is to sustain and advance the community’s arts industry. Evanston’s vision for its Cultural Fund Grant Program is to activate the extraordinary assets of the community to develop Evanston as an arts hub and destination.
