Downtown Mural Grant

The Downtown Advisory Board (DAB) is offering up to 50/50 match funding not to exceed $1,000. The DAB has allocated $2,500 for this year’s grant cycle.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until August 2022, or until funds run out. Applications will be considered at the DAB’s regularly scheduled meetings (third Monday of the month). To be considered, please submit your application to no later than 5:00 pm on the second Monday of the month. Once your application is submitted, Christi will reach out to schedule an interview slot at the DAB meeting. Presentations will be no longer than 10 minutes each with 10 minutes scheduled for questions.

Grant funds will be disbursed when the mural is complete. The applicant will submit their receipt from the artist showing that is has been paid in full and the DAB will verify the mural is completed and fits what was applied for in the original application.
