The City of Plano sponsors four types of Arts & Events Grants (Small Arts, Major Arts, Special Event, and Urban/Town Center Event), which are reviewed by the Cultural Affairs Commission and are funded by hotel occupancy tax included in the City’s Convention & Tourism Fund. Usage of hotel occupancy tax in relation to Arts & Events funding is outlined in the Texas Tax Code.
