The Cultural Facilities Program is designed to support Seattle-based organizations with facilities-based capital projects. The program awards funding to Seattle arts, heritage, cultural and arts service organizations with facility renovation or new facility projects.
Eligible organizations must have at least a three-year operating history as a legally established not-for-profit organization, have control of the facility through ownership or a longer-term lease, and demonstrate a record of ongoing artistic or cultural accomplishments in Seattle. A significant amount of funding for the facility’s project beyond this grant must be in place before applying. Projects must be able to take place and be completed between November 2014 and December 2015.
