Town of Clayton Cultural Arts Grants:
$20,000 Up for Grabs in 2017
Since 2008, the Clayton Town Council has designated more than $100,000 in Cultural Arts Grants to individuals and organizations that bring art and cultural events to the Town, spark interest in arts programming, generate new ideas, and reach out to the underserved members our community.
This year, the Town Council has doubled down on their commitment to the arts - raising the available grant total from $10,00 to $20,000! Applications are available online, and submissions must be emailed or submitted to the Public Information Office at Town Hall by 5 p.m. Monday, March 6, 2017.
The Town is looking for creative, innovative projects to help enhance our already blossoming arts community. Among other criteria, we examine each applicant's ability to operate independently and to generate alternative funding. See the application for more information.
