"The City's Events & Recognitions Committee is dedicated to promoting equity and social justice through the presentation of events," stated committee member, Chris McNabb. "We are looking forward to growing the impact of special events, reducing barriers to participation, engaging more diverse audiences, and expanding to more Tacoma neighborhoods with this new funding model."
Applications will be open from April 23 until June 4, 2021. Applicants may request up to $10,000 for costs associated with the production of an event (or events) that are accessible to the general public. Funding may be used for event infrastructure, traffic control, performers, event marketing, and more. Funded events must take place between August 2021 and July 2022. Applications will be measured on merit, equity, community impact, and applicants' capacity to successfully produce the event. Applicants will be encouraged to address how they represent and focus on underrepresented segments of the community. Full application details are available now.

See guidelines for complete terms.
During the open application period, staff will provide orientation workshops to assist prospective applicants in creating a successful application. The inaugural funding process is anticipated to be completed by the end of July 2021, with flexibility due to the ongoing impacts of the pandemic.
