2020 UPDATE: The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for most arts, heritage, and preservation organizations to make concrete plans for 2021. Because of this, 4Culture has decided that 2019-2020 Sustained Support awards will be carried over into 2021, pending filling out an abridged application. Program managers will contact current recipients directly about how to proceed. The abridged application will be due by Wednesday, October 14, 2020, at 5:00 pm.

We regret that we cannot accept applications from organizations that do not currently receive Sustained Support in 2020. In fall 2021—pending improved pandemic circumstances—new applicants will be able to apply for Sustained Support funding for 2022. Two-year applications will resume in 2023.
