Applications are now being accepted for Salt Lake City’s Arts, Culture, and Events (ACE) Fund. The annual grant program is designed to support and grow neighborhood and community events in Salt Lake City, with awards ranging from $500 to $10,000.
Since 2012, the Mayor’s Office has sponsored events, large and small, that contribute to Salt Lake City’s unique and vibrant culture, bringing communities together to celebrate and learn.
“The ACE Fund is a great way to help ensure some of the best community celebrations, both long-standing and new, continue to call Salt Lake City home,” said Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall. “Arts and culture are so important to our capital city and I couldn’t be happier that we’re able to support these events each year. I look forward to seeing what community organizers think of next.”
To be eligible for ACE funding, events must take place within Salt Lake City limits and should support the city’s overall vision and goals, such as contributing to city-wide economic development, supporting the health and wellness of residents, or promoting diversity, inclusion, and cultural identity. Information and applications are available at www.slc.gov/mayor/ace-fund. The application window will close Tuesday, December 13, at 11:59 p.m.
The City will host four information sessions throughout November where those interested can learn more about the fund and ask questions about the grant process.
