Additional Eligibility Criteria:

All applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:
- Any organization whose primary mission relates to arts, heritage, or preservation may apply for Cultural Relief funds. However, if you are awarded funds and your organization is not a nonprofit or public development authority, you must find a fiscal sponsor before you can claim your award. If you are unable or do not wish to secure a fiscal sponsor, you may apply for Cultural Relief funding as an individual.
- You must have a minimum 2-year track record of programming or activity.
- You must be located in and serving King County, Washington.
- You must not be a 4Culture staff, Advisory Committee, or Board member, or a 4Culture Cultural Relief Fund panelist during the period of review.

Pre-Application Information:

The first round of funding will be available April 1 through June 5. Applicants may apply at any time within that time frame.

Applications will be reviewed by a panel weekly and will be notified within 10 business days about the status of their application.

Applications that are not funded within the weekly panel review will remain under consideration in subsequent weekly panel reviews through April and May, and there will be no need to reapply during this time frame.

When the current round of funding concludes, 4Culture will evaluate the need for further support, and anticipates offering additional grant funds.
