And unlike the just completed $3.5 festival grant, events in
cities and communities of all sizes will be eligible
The Department of Commerce’s Working Washington: Round 5 Small Business Grants Program will open on August 17. $45 million will be made available to the arts, culture, heritage and science sector, of which festivals and events are included. Grants will be awarded to organizations that have experience financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic – learn how you can be a recipient of these funds. Eligible businesses may receive up to a $75,000 grant, and Commerce is permitted to prioritize those who have not yet received a grant.
