UETF 2022-2023 Funding Cycle - A Vision for Equity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Power

The Urban Enhancement Trust Fund (UETF) strives to contribute to making Albuquerque a national role model among cities working toward equity and inclusion. The Fund envisions a city of people whose success, safety and health are not pre-determined by their race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, income, socioeconomics, immigration status, disability, and personal background. A city where all communities, artists, performers, writers, and cultural workers have the power, support, and monetary investment they need to share their own stories, practice their culture, and create art on their own terms.

The FY 2022 - FY 2023 cycle of the Urban Enhancement Trust Fund seeks to provide funding to projects that address the needs of the diverse communities that comprise the City of Albuquerque. This two-year funding cycle will prioritize projects that positively impact residents, neighborhoods and communities of the city.
