FY 21 Core Bridge Year Eligibility
Bridge Year Applicants must have:
- Completed FY 19 and FY 20 contract activities by September 30, 2020.
- Meet the eligibility requirements in the FY 19 Core Funding Programs Guidelines.
Bridge year applicants must request the amount they received in FY 20. Depending on Hotel Occupancy Tax funds, the Cultural Arts Funding Program will attempt to award the same amount for FY 21 as in FY 20.
In FY 20 Core application you requested $100,000, but you were awarded $70,500.
In the FY 21 Core Application (the bridge year) you would request $70,500 because that is what was awarded in Year 2 of the funding cycle.
Projects must be similar in size and scope to that of Year 2 and support activities related to programming and projects that are open to Austin residents, visitors and tourists, and are consistent with the promotion and enhancement of the City of Austin as a cultural destination.
Organizational Support and Project Support I require a 1:1 match.
Project Support I allows the matching requirement to be met with 50% of the match from documented in-kind contributions.
Project Support II and Project Support III require a 1:2 (half) match with 50% of the match allowable from documented in-kind.
Culturally Specific Marketing Supplement
You must request the amount you were awarded in FY 20, not the amount that you requested.
