Current FAQ’s

  1. What time is this due on the 1st?

The grant is not due on the first.  You can find instructions for the grant here: 

http://sanangeloarts.com/storage/UserFileFolder/Subgrant_Guidelines_and_Checklist_2017_3.pdf

 

Here are the instructions for the report from my email- the report is due by 11:59pm

Good Afternoon:

 

I wanted to let you know that I updated the link for the grant reporting form.  It is here: https://goo.gl/forms/25x0kJbxqw6OXvOi1

 

This evaluation report must be submitted by August 1, 2017.  Failure to submit this final report, and all attachments, will jeopardize future funding of any type. (Refer to Matching Requirements in the San Angelo Cultural Affairs Council Sub-grant Guidelines.)  Your responses will be provided to the 2017-2018 grant review committee and are subject to program audit.

 

THIS IS YOUR FIRST AND LAST REMINDER!!

 

Also, information for the grant applications can be found here: http://sanangeloarts.com/articles/view/subgrant-program-4e3039f4-0e84-4681-98d6-3b8dac100a8c

 

Those applications are due on August 18 (in the office) at noon.  Remember, if you have questions, please email me and I will post them to the website. 

 2. Can you please elaborate on needing to know about how many people with disabilities were served in "special programming"? What would the special programming consist of?

This question comes directly from the Texas Commission on the Arts and is one of their required questions.  Do you serve anyone with disabilities in any special programming?  Examples from our grantees include: a special painting class at the museum, a musician visiting a group home, a photography class.  Not all grantees will be able to answer every question.

3. Please specify the start and end date so we are accurate when we submit the form.

From the subgrant guidelines for 2016-2017:

Sub-grant applications may be submitted for projects occurring within the grant period from September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018. Organizations may apply for only one grant during the sub-grant year.  Grant evaluations for the 2017-2018 Grant Year will be due AUGUST 1, 2017.

In the future please keep a copy of the guidelines for your reference.  You are responsible for knowing and meeting all requirements in the guidelines.

 4. We have noticed that the grant has changed a great deal over the past few years and is geared more toward education and tourism. Do you mind elaborating on this change?

These grants are funded solely through HOT Funds.  The Hotel Occupancy Tax Statute states that: 

Revenue from the municipal hotel occupancy tax may be used only to promote tourism and the convention and hotel industry, and that use is limited to the following: (4)  the encouragement, promotion, improvement, and application of the arts, including instrumental and vocal music, dance, drama, folk art, creative writing, architecture, design and allied fields, painting, sculpture, photography, graphic and craft arts, motion pictures, radio, television, tape and sound recording, and other arts related to the presentation, performance, execution, and exhibition of these major art forms.  (Texas Tax Code, Title 3, Subtitle D, Chapter 351, Subchapter A).

All funds must meet the two-step process in A) directly promoting tourism and the convention and hotel industry and B) promoting the arts.  Therefore, the change to the grant process is to ensure that all sub grantees are meeting the requirements of the law.  The grant is geared towards tourism only.  There is no requirement for education activities.
