Mandatory Pre-Application Check-In Meeting (Virtual)

Organizations applying for City Arts Partnership grants must attend a mandatory virtual meeting. The 45-minute meeting will outline changes to this year’s application process and cover the basics for submitting your best application. It is a good opportunity for applicants to ask for clarification about the guidelines, so we recommend reading through them thoroughly prior to the meeting.

Pre-application check-in meeting options:

  • Wednesday, April 13 from 5:15 to 6 pm 
  • Thursday, April 14 from 8 to 8:45 am

Please email Tania Blanich, Director of Operations, at by April 11 to indicate which meeting you will attend and you will be sent a Zoom link. If you cannot attend one of the two mandatory sessions, but plan to submit a proposal, contact Tania and if at all possible, we will make other accommodations.
