Welcome to the CultureWorks online Grant Application System!

CultureWorks is committed to strengthening artists and arts and culture organizations to drive community health and success.  We accomplish this through grant opportunities, deepening access to communities with barriers, increasing the capacity of small and medium-sized organizations and individual artists, and the promotion of events to the public

CultureWorks values diversity and inclusivity and believes everyone in our community should have access to arts and culture, as well as the opportunity to express their culture through the arts.

This is the online portal through which eligible applicants can apply for funding opportunities offered to professional artists and non-profit arts and culture organizations.

Currently, there are no open grant programs. The Annual Grant Program will begin to accept applications in early January of 2022.


PLEASE NOTE: All CultureWorks funding is exclusively available to professional artists and non-profit arts and culture organizations that live in and have a physical presence in the Richmond and Tri-Cities region. This region includes: City of Richmond, Colonial Heights, Hopewell and Petersburg, along with the counties of Charles City, Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, New Kent and Powhatan, and the town of Ashland.
