As part of a new Office of Cultural Affairs initiative, a funding program to support special projects for non-profit arts organizations and individual artists in any discipline has been established. Awards of $1,000 to $6,000 will be made to support projects by non-profit organizations and individual artists not currently supported in the COP and CPP programs. Awards will be made multiple times during the City’s fiscal year and must take place within the city limits of Dallas. Artists and non-profit organizations must be residents and/or have their permanent administrative office located in Dallas.
