Civic Lubbock, Inc. will be conducting a grant workshop in preparation for the May 31, 2013 deadline for the first round of grants available through the 2013 City of Lubbock/Civic Lubbock, Inc. Cultural Arts Grant Program. The Cultural Arts Grant Program provides local cultural organizations with financial support for projects that promote Tourism and the Arts in Lubbock. Funding for the Cultural Arts Grant Program comes from an allocation of the Hotel Occupancy Tax, which is generated from visitors who stay overnight in Lubbock. Additional funding for this program is provided through a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts.
A Cultural Arts Grant Workshop will be held on Monday, April 29, 2013 from 4:00pm-5:30pm in Room 104/105 of the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, 1501 Mac Davis Lane. The workshop is free and open to local organizations who may be interested in applying for a Cultural Arts Grant for projects that begin after September 1, 2013. The Grant Workshop will cover the Cultural Arts Grant Program’s guidelines and procedures and the application process.
Two workshops are held each year and all organizations wishing to apply for a Cultural Arts Grant must send a representative to at least one workshop in a 12-month period. Applying organizations must be a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization (or government equivalent) and have been actively pursuing their goals for at least one year.
