The city of Bainbridge Island is accepting proposals for cultural projects and activities for city grants in 2018-2019.

Proposed projects must benefit Bainbridge residents and visitors. Officials said a total of $300,000 will be given out over the next two years.

Awards typically run from $5,000 to $30,000.

Special consideration will be given to organizations and projects that will use the funds to advance the community objectives identified within the Cultural Element and/or Economic Element of the city’s Comprehensive Plan.

According to the city, special consideration will also be given “to organizations and projects that involve robust community participation; encourage the well-being of the island’s significant cultural sector; strengthen organizational capacity; and foster opportunities for collaboration within the cultural sector.”

Applications are due by 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27.

Applicant and project requirements are included in the RFP (Request for Proposals) on the city website.

Proposed projects will be reviewed by the Cultural Funding Advisory Committee, a seven-member community group chaired by Councilman Wayne Roth.

After reviewing the applications, the committee will make funding recommendations to the city council.
