About the grants
Eligible organizations only need to fill out one application to be considered for funding from the following programs:

    • 4Culture 2022 Sustained Support offering unrestricted funds to cover operating expenses such as salaries, rent, utilities, supplies, fees, or services.
    • 4Culture Recovery Fund and the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture Recovery Fund for federally funded pandemic relief through the American Rescue Plan Act.

Who can apply?
King County cultural organizations with a minimum 3-year operating history should submit an application. Organizations of all budget sizes will be considered for 2022 Sustained Support.

4Culture and the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture will also consider organizations with 2019 revenue of $1 million or below for Recovery Funds. To receive these funds, you must have experienced a drop in revenue from 2019 to 2020 due to the pandemic. Please read the guidelines for more details on eligibility and criteria.

Come to a workshop
We know navigating multiple funding opportunities can be confusing! We’re here to help. Staff from both 4Culture and the Office of Arts & Culture will be available to answer everyone’s questions about these funding programs.
