The Burlington Arts and Culture Fund (BACF), which provides grants to local artists, multicultural groups and arts and cultural organizations is now accepting applications.

The purpose of the BACF is to provide grants to encourage social cohesion, enhance the quality of life and stimulate cultural and economic development through direct investment, enrich how Burlington residents experience and engage with arts and culture, foster creativity and nurture the quality and capacity of the arts and culture sector in Burlington.

The annual grant program, which provides $70,000 of total available funding, also recognizes and supports diverse identities, perspectives, languages, cultures and artistic practices.

To be eligible for BACF funding, applicants must be in the City of Burlington and be either an individual artist or arts and cultural collective (defined as three or more individuals) that exhibit high achievement in arts and culture programming, an incorporated not-for-profit arts and culture organization, or a charitable arts and culture organization or a multicultural group that fulfills a significant role in the Burlington community through the arts and culture.

A virtual information session will be held on Jan. 17 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Microsoft Teams in order for people to learn more about the program and the application process.

Online applications are open from now until Feb. 3, 2023, and the maximum amount awarded for each project grant will be $7,000.

Applicants are reminded that funding must be used to further their not-for-profit activities and that the grants are intended to support a specific activity or event taking place from April to March.
