Recovery Funds for Cultural Organizations: Apply for Three Grants via One Application

We’ve teamed up with 4Culture to create a single application process for several grants in King County and the City of Seattle. 

About the Grants:

Eligible organizations only need to fill out one application to be considered for funding from the following programs:

  • 4Culture 2022 Sustained Support
  • 4Culture Recovery Fund
  • City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture Recovery Fund

The deadline to apply is Friday, November 5, 2021 at 5:00 pm PDT. 

Who Can Apply?

King County cultural organizations with a minimum 3-year operating history should submit an application. Organizations of all budget sizes will be considered for 2022 Sustained Support.
4Culture and Seattle ARTS will also consider organizations with 2019 revenue of $1 million or below for Recovery Funds. To receive these funds, you must have experienced a drop in revenue from 2019 to 2020 due to the pandemic. Please read the guidelines and an FAQ for Seattle Funds for more details on eligibility and criteria.

Note: if you are a cultural organization with pre-pandemic revenue of more than $1 million, please refer to King County’s Revive and Thrive Together program for federal COVID relief funds. If you’re not sure where to apply, start with our screening tool.

Come to a Workshop

We know navigating multiple funding opportunities can be confusing and overwhelming! We’re here to help. Staff from both 4Culture and the Office of Arts & Culture will be available to answer all your questions about these funding programs.
