City launches web portal for its funding programs

Artists and arts, culture and heritage groups on the hunt for funds should check out the city of Seattle’s new web portal which includes information about the city’s diverse funding programs, including a listing of city funding programs that support arts and culture.

The city makes investments ranging from $250 to $1.5 million to support projects involving youth, technology, community building, physical improvements, arts and the environment. The new website is a one-stop-shop for Seattle’s diverse funding programs.

“We want to make it easy for people to improve their communities,” said Mayor Mike McGinn.

The user-friendly portal organizes funding opportunities by category, allows visitors to search by the name of the city department and funding program(s), and includes the option to view all the programs side-by-side in an easy-to-read matrix format.

The web portal also includes an online calendar which lists funding deadlines and workshops. A blog provides updates on the funding programs and includes stories about community projects.
