Cultural Affairs Commission

Cultural Affairs Commission 

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.

The overall purpose of these grants is to promote arts and culture within the City of Plano; to promote tourism, as well as the convention and hotel industry; to create a greater appreciation for the cultural and ethnic diversity of our citizens; to stimulate the development of new programs which would otherwise be unavailable; and to encourage projects that involve the active collaboration and cooperation of multiple arts organizations.
