The Lynchburg Office of Economic Development has updated the James River Arts & Cultural District Program to streamline and strengthen the application process and review procedures, effective July 2016.
Changes include a revised application form, emphasis on collaboration and inclusivity, and some limits on how long projects may be funded:
- Projects that have been funded by the grant program for more than 2 years are not eligible to apply for funding again without significant program innovation or change.
- Organizations may submit no more than two applications per fiscal year. This does not include organizations that host events through facility rental agreements.
- Applications are due three times per fiscal year – August 1, December 1 and March 1. For full details and to download an application, click here.
