The Fort Fund Grant Program supports projects and activities that provide arts and cultural programming to the Fort Collins community and visitors. Established in 1989, the program distributes lodging tax revenues deposited in the City’s Cultural Development and Programming Account and the Tourism Programming Account in accordance with the provisions of Section 25-244 of the City Code.

Fort Fund grants support nonprofit arts, cultural and tourism events that enrich the creative vitality of the community, promote local heritage and diversity, and provide opportunities for arts and cultural participation. The grants help support Fort Collins as a creative center and tourist destination and promote the health and well-being of all residents and visitors. Applications are reviewed by the City Council-appointed Cultural Resources Board before being submitted and recommended to the Fort Collins City Council for final approval. Once the City Council approves the funding recommendations, applicants are notified of the decision via email.
