The City of Tallahassee invested $300,000 in COCA's Cultural Grant Program for FY23. These funds support community art programs that are not eligible for TDT funds. Applicants must be a 501(c)3 organization or public entity whose mission is to present or produce year-round programming in arts, culture, history, or heritage to the City of Tallahassee residents.

Eligible applicants may request up to $10,000. Priority funding will be given to applicants not funded by FY23 Cultural Grant, BIPOC organizations, and underserved organizations.
