The City of Tacoma is now accepting Arts Projects funding applications from eligible organizations producing publicly accessible arts programming within Tacoma city limits in 2018. Arts Projects funding ranges from $1,000 to $5,000, and supports community projects that focus on the arts. Funded events must take place between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018.


Eligibility extends to private non-profit agencies with a 501(c) designation; organized groups of community volunteers, such as a business district or neighborhood council with an advisory body, business license and organizational bank account; educational institutions or for-profit businesses wishing to produce not-for-profit arts functions; and federally-recognized tribes or Native non-profits. Applicants are required to have offices within Tacoma or, if they have no office, a majority of the applicant’s activities must take place within Tacoma city limits. See guidelines for complete eligibility requirements.
