Second Call for Art Grants 2018 Application

Workshops Offered on March 20.
Application Deadline is April 30. 


(CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – February 26, 2018) The City of Corpus Christi’s Arts & Cultural Commission is issuing a second call for Arts Grant applications to support arts and cultural projects that make our city a more attractive cultural destination to visitors. Applications are for matching grants of up to $15,000.

The second call was made possible by the Arts & Cultural Commission decision to release unused funds, and to give organizations affected by Hurricane Harvey a second chance to apply. 

Art Grants are available to 501c3 non-profit corporations and tax-exempt community-oriented organizations providing arts programs and activities within Corpus Christi. The funding source for the Arts Grant Program is the Hotel Occupancy Tax. To be considered for a grant award, all programs and activities submitted must meet state requirements to promote tourism and the convention and hotel industry. 

All nonprofit organizations interested in applying for an Arts Grant are encouraged to attend one of the Workshops offered on March 20 from 9–11:30am or 2–4:30pm. Space is limited, so call (361) 826-3489 early to register for a workshop.
