Renton Arts and Culture Grants Program

Renton Municipal Arts Commission
Awards made quarterly in 2023

Renton Municipal Arts Commission offers grants to individuals, organizations and community groups for arts and culture projects and events that serve the general public in Renton. The commission encourage innovative projects by artists and communities that fill in cultural gaps and inspire new forms of creative participation, particularly for underserved groups.

These flexible grants are designed to create access for individuals and groups not served by our annual Community Arts Support Program. Projects need to provide public benefit.

Historically, grants have been awarded in amounts between $500 and $10,000. Projects must take place during 2023 and should be completed by December 15, 2023.

Applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis. Applications MUST be submitted electronically by 4:30 PM on the day of the deadline or they will not be considered in that quarter. Application deadlines for 2023 are:

  • Q1 – already closed
  • Q2 – February 3, 2023
  • Q3 – April 21, 2023
  • Q4 – July 21, 2023
