The Community Arts Grant Program is funded by the City of Helotes Economic Development Corporation and managed by the Community Arts Grant Committee. The Community Arts Grant Program provides funding to Helotes-based arts and cultural organizations as well as individual artists of public art displays.
The program will accept applications between April thru May 31, 2022. All submittals will be reviewed by the Community Arts Grant Committee. Official notification of grant status (approved or declined) will be sent out by early June 2022. If additional funds remain, applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis until July 29th.
Grant funds are to be expended for activities occurring between October 1, 2021 and September 30, 2022. A final project or organizational report must be submitted to the Community Arts Grant Committee within ninety (90) days of the project completion date or by September 30, 2022, whichever date is earlier. The post-project report must delineate expenditure of funds and describe the success and challenges of the project or, in the case of general operating support, for activities occurring between October 1, 2021 and September 30, 2022.
The number of public art projects awarded funding is dependent on the funds available and the number of applicants submitting each year. Whenever possible, organizations receiving a Community Arts Grant are expected to acknowledge this support in programs, press releases, and advertisements with the following language: “The Helotes Economic Development Corporation provided grants funds for this project.”
