4Culture will open the first phase of our Recovery Fund. Cultural organizations with 2019 revenue of $1 million and below that experienced revenue loss between 2019 and 2020 will be eligible for this program.
Using a single application, these organizations can apply for both ARPA disaster relief grants and 4Culture 2022 Sustained Support funds. Additionally, we’ve partnered with the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture to share this application process to better serve cultural organizations within Seattle. This will allow eligible organizations to submit one application to be considered for funding by both agencies. 4Culture and the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture will distribute $7 million in federal relief funding.
Full details about eligibility, federal grant contracting requirements, and more will be released when this grant opens on September 23.
The 4Culture Recovery Fund will also offer support for individual artists and cultural producers in the coming months; we will provide more information as we develop the program.
