The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission is currently accepting applications for funding through both the 1% Lodgers’ Tax: Special & New Projects and the Community Arts Development Program. Nonprofit arts organizations presenting arts programming within Santa Fe County are eligible to apply.

Interested organizations are encouraged to send a representative to a pre-application workshop that will be offered on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 3 p.m. for the 1% Lodgers’ Tax: Special & New Projects category and 4 p.m. for the Community Arts Development. Both workshops will be held at 120 South Federal Place (the main US Post Office) in room 326. Further information, applications, forms and details regarding the workshops are available on the Arts Commission’s website, under the “Funding” section, by calling 505-955-6707, or via email to degarcia@santafenm.gov. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 5 p.m.

The 1% Lodgers’ Tax supports arts events that play a role in promoting tourism and demonstrate high artistic quality. Organizations may apply in one of two program areas. The Special & New Projects Program is available to organizations that are new to the 1% Lodgers’ Tax funding or for special, one-time events. The Community Arts Development Program funds community-based organizations and projects of high artistic quality that provide arts services to the local community, with an emphasis on projects that bring the community together to celebrate the diversity of artistic heritage. Education through the arts projects in schools and other settings are eligible to apply.

Please call 505-955-6707 or email degarcia@santafenm.gov for more information. More information is also available on the Arts Commission’s website.
