EVERETT, Wash. – The City of Everett Cultural Arts Commission is now accepting applications for cultural arts grants to fund art programs and capital projects in 2022. The commission will award up to $40,000 in grants for 2022.

Artists and community organizations that offer arts programs and services, and that meet the eligibility requirements, are invited to apply. All grant-funded projects must take place within Everett city limits and be open to the general public.
