Examples of potential projects include murals, pop-up installations or performances, scavenger hunts, community beautification projects, etc.

If your project idea is educational in nature – either creative skill classes or business skill classes for creatives and can be carried out during the 1st week of October, please apply under our Education Week specific grant application. If your project would be carried out any other time during our grant window, please use this application.  


Grant awards can be requested for amounts between $1,000 and $8,000. Proposals will be reviewed by the Georgetown Arts & Culture Association and chosen based on the best match to the Evaluation Criteria defined below. Priority will be given to people who live and work in Georgetown.
