Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Texas nonprofits, schools, and arts and culture organizations in eligible locations to support music, art, dance, cultural heritage, and theatre programs and events in the community. Funding is intended to support cultural programming, events that are open to the public, and organizational development. Eligible organizations should benefit the City of Georgetown.

Due to the continued obstacles to holding events as a result of the pandemic, the Georgetown Arts and Culture Grants for 2021 Round I will also include funding options for organizational development such as strategic planning, board training, and professional development that will help fulfill the mission of the organization.

The Georgetown Arts and Culture Grants help the Arts and Culture Board fulfill bylaw requirements which include recognizing and encouraging groups and organizations that enrich Georgetown life by bringing cultural and artistic values and artifacts to the City. Members of the Arts and Culture Board believe a vibrant arts community and cultural offerings are good for the quality of life for residents, will attract visitors, and will assist Georgetown in becoming a nationally recognized arts destination by 2030. The grant program helps develop and strengthen the local arts community by contributing funding to arts and culture programming that enhances the local community.

Special consideration will be given for events or projects that meet one or more of these criteria:

  • Are free admission
  • Include outreach to populations that are traditionally underrepresented
  • Have a cultural tourism or economic impact (e.g., events that may attract people who also attend other arts and culture venues or events, stay overnight, shop, or dine in Georgetown)
