    Special Events Funding Applications Open
    Competitive Funding Process Aims to Expand Access

    TACOMA, Wash. -- The City of Tacoma will begin accepting applications for funding for the production of public-benefiting Special Events in 2021. Application window is now open at this link. The window will close at 11:59 PM on Friday, June 3, 2021.


    The City of Tacoma’s commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and transformation drives budget and funding decisions and this competitive panel process ensures an equitable distribution of funds, with intent to expand access to diverse communities and cultures throughout Tacoma.


    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. *Or when Pierce County has achieved a phase in which events are allowed.


    Eligibility extends to private non-profit agencies with a 501(c) designation, organized groups of community volunteers, Neighborhood Business Districts, Neighborhood Councils, educational institutions or for-profit businesses wishing to produce not-for-profit events, and federally-recognized tribes or Native non-profits. Applicants are required to have offices within Tacoma or, if they have no offices, a majority of their activities must take place within Tacoma city limits. Other eligibility requirements apply. 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.
