Each year, the Fulton County Department of Arts & Culture (FCAC) invests in non-profit organizations to ensure that Fulton County citizens enjoy a wide array of rich arts experiences. FCAC announces funding ranging from $2,000 to $150,000 for Fulton County based arts, cultural and community based non-profit organizations and artist collectives for the 2014 funding cycle.

 

Eligible groups are encouraged to apply for these service contracts which are designed to support activities taking place between July 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014 that address the FCAC’s mission of access to, participation in and appreciation of the arts for all Fulton County residents.
FCAC will lead workshops that will address the application process and funding guidelines. Workshops are free and open to the public. Advanced registration is required. First time applicants are required to attend one workshop or consult with the FCAC staff prior to submitting an application. (Attached is a workshop schedule)

The Guidelines and Application Forms include a few updates. Revisions and program updates include:  

•  The Contracts for Services Program is moving to a calendar year funding cycle. To launch the calendar year cycle, the 2014 funding cycle will function as a bridge year offering funding for (6) six months, from July 30, 2014 –December 31, 2014.

•  Fulton County is rolling out a new, proactive Access Policy for Persons with Disabilities.     Informational workshops will be announced for fall 2014 for all contractors.

Returning organizations are encouraged to update the vendor information in the system including address and contact annually. Additionally, all applicants should check in with the purchasing department to ensure that they have received all the required business documents to maintain an active vendor code. Vendor code numbers are required at the time of application.
