Applications will be accepted until Feb. 28, 2018 and will fund projects from April 2018 to April 2019. Successful grant applicants will be announced at the end of March 2018.

To be eligible for BACF funding, applicants must be located in Burlington and must be:

  • An incorporated non-profit arts and culture organization, or;
  • A charitable arts and culture organization, an individual artist, an arts and cultural collective or a multicultural group.

Grants will be evaluated in part by a peer assessment jury for artistic merit and by city staff for program merit and strategic initiative, citywide and community impact and economic impact.

Anyone interested in learning more about this opportunity and the application process is encouraged to join staff and arts and culture professionals for an information session on:
