U District Arts Recovery Grant

The U District Partnership is seeking applications for $5,000-$20,000 in funding from arts and culture organizations and businesses to support 2023 arts-related activations and events in the U District. These funds are available to the U District thanks to the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture’s Neighborhood Recovery Program.

Eligibility and Guidelines

Applicants can request between $5,000 and $20,000 for arts and culture-related events or activations to take place by September 2023. A total of $75,000 in awards will be made. Applicants may apply for new or existing programs. Activations and events should take place in the U District and seek to rebuild and assist in arts and culture recovery and reach underserved communities and audiences and those most impacted by COVID-19. Applicants must have a valid State of Washington business license and/or non-profit status.

Applications are due by 5:00pm PT on Friday, March 3, 2023. Awards will be announced March 17, 2023.
