Snapshot: Arts Funding Programs While municipal cultural grant programs are usually created and managed by municipal staff, some funding may be allocated or awarded to an independent non-profit organization in the community (e.g., a local arts council), which adjudicates and disburses the funds to local arts groups. Delegating the administration of program funds to these organizations has sometimes been a developmental stage for smaller communities, leading to a more formalized structure of local government arts programming supported by municipal staff. There are also examples of developing or using a sophisticated arm’s-length agency when funding major professional organizations in large urban centres. 38 municipalities responded to the Public Art section of the survey.
