FY23 Allocation


FY23 Local Priorities

In addition to the state criteria, applications will be evaluated using the following review criteria:
– applicants must secure a venue and submit a WRITTEN COMMITTMENT of location with the online application.
– for FY 23 grants, the program must take place within the 2023 calendar year
– we give priority to programs that will benefit many residents rather than a few
– we give priority to artists, performers and presenters from our community who meet the state and local guidelines
– we may choose to partially fund many projects rather than fully fund a few
– we may choose to limit the number of applications that may be funded to one individual/group depending on the amount of our allocation for each cycle

According to our community input, we will give priority to programs in the following order of preference:
* programs that are geared to families
* programs that are geared to senior citizens
* programs that are presented as concerts, lectures or artistic cultural events
