Applications open for Salt Lake City’s Arts, Culture, and Events (ACE) Fund for the 2024 cycle on Nov. 1. The annual grant program is designed to support neighborhood and community events in Salt Lake City, with awards ranging from $500 to $10,000.
Since 2012, the Mayor’s Office has sponsored a variety of community-centered events that contribute to Salt Lake City’s exceptional culture and vibrance, uniting neighborhoods and communities through celebration, education, cultural programming, and more.
“Arts and culture are so important to our capital city, and I’m excited to support these events and important community visions year after year,” said Mayor Erin Mendenhall. “The ACE Fund helps ensure some of the best, long-standing, and new community celebrations continue to call Salt Lake City home. 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. The application window will close on December 1, at 11:59 p.m.
