City of Culver City Special Events Grant Program

2019-20 Call for Applications Now Open

Post Date:01/31/2019

Ticket - Admit OneThe City of Culver City is pleased to open its Call for Applications for the 2019-20 Special Events Grant Program. Adopted in January 2017 by the City Council, the Special Event Grant Program (“Program”) is intended to provide a system of greater fiscal transparency and improve budget reliability, while allowing event organizers access to a centralized process for initiating requests with The City for funding and sponsorship. 

Eligible special events can either be community/charitable with a recreational, cultural and/or social benefit to Culver City residents or large-scale, signature events that regionally promote— and provide measurable economic benefits to—the City. Grant awards will be offered in the form of fee waivers for City permits or in-kind and/or direct staffing services.

Events requiring program support between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020 may apply. To be considered for grant funding, organizers must register online to attend a mandatory pre-application meeting and submit an electronic application through the City’s website. The 2019-20 Special Event Grant Program application are due by Tuesday, April 12, 2019.

For further information about the Special Event Grant Program, contact the City of Culver City Finance Department at (310) 253-5865 or via email at
