Since 2005, the City of Dubuque has awarded over $3.6 million to area arts and culture organizations and other non-profits for programs that reach thousands of Dubuque adults and children each year. In addition, these funds have leveraged other community support for arts and culture events and programs, both cash and in kind.
The Operating Support Fund is designed to assist 501(c)(3) arts and cultural organizations located in the city of Dubuque that primarily serve Dubuque residents with year-round arts and culture events, programs, and services, and can demonstrate a record of programmatic and administrative stability. Organizations must have been in existence for a least 2 years prior to the grant deadline.
The Special Projects Fund is designed to fund creative, unique, and innovative arts and culture projects that focus on community engagement and go a step beyond the conventional. Special projects must provide high-quality arts or cultural experiences that are diverse, equitable, and inclusive whether in the program planning or target audiences, through partnership and leveraging of matching funds. All non-profit organizations, or groups operating as a non-profit, are eligible for special project funds; applications from individuals will not be considered.
