Palm Coast – Cultural arts help us explain and understand the world in which we live. It encourages creativity and provides immense value to the artist and the viewer.

The City of Palm Coast supports Cultural Arts and has offered an annual Cultural Arts Financial Assistance Grant program for several years. Our grant program provides funding for cultural arts programs and/or events that are conducted within the City of Palm Coast by Palm Coast-based non-profit organizations.

As funding is expected to become available for Fiscal Year 2022 fiscal year for events or programs taking place between October 1, 2021 and September 30, 2022, the City is looking for new grantees. As always, preference is given to first time applicants that meet the grant requirements.
