Palm Coast Offering Cultural Arts Grants

The City of Palm Coast offers annual Cultural Arts Financial Assistance Grants. The grant program provides funding for cultural arts programs and/or events that are conducted within the City of Palm Coast by Flagler County-based non-profit organizations.
Funding has been delegated to organizations that applied for grants in August of this year, but additional grant opportunities are still available. The city is looking for grantees with events or programs taking place in fiscal year 2023 between October 2022 and September 30, 2023. As always, preference is given to first-time applicants that meet the grant requirements.
For the upcoming fiscal year, the city has updated the Cultural Art Grant into two separate tiers. One tier will be for organizations that host programs/events to generate economic impact for Flagler County. The second tier is for local non-profit organizations.
A scoring system has been established for the evaluation process. Each organization will be scored through specific criteria for the potential of 100 possible points.
Organizations that meet the grant criteria should email the City’s Parks & Recreation Senior Staff Assistant at no later than November 28, 2022. In the email, please include organization name, applicant name, phone number, and email address.
All organizations will then receive an invitation to apply for the grant. All requirements for the grant will be included in the electronic application provided in the invitation. Applications are to be completed electronically. The deadline to submit your completed application is December 12th.
The Cultural Arts Review Committee will meet on December 16, 2022, from 4:00-6:00 PM The grant will also be discussed at two Palm Coast City Council meetings: A workshop on January 10, 2023, at 9:00 AM and a business meeting on January 17, 2023, at 9:00 AM. All meetings will take place in the council chambers in the community wing of City Hall, 160 Lake Ave.
