Grants Program Update

April 7, 2022

We have some exciting announcements about our ACL Music Festival Grants Program! In response to the needs we’ve heard in the community, we are making the following changes:

  • The Community and Impact grants are now combined as the “Community Impact Grant." They will be offered twice a year for projects that are $5,000 and up
  • There are two deadlines, April 30th and September 30th
  • There is no upper limit to the grant funding request*
  • Grantees are allowed two years to complete the project

What does that mean? Larger, more impactful projects can be funded during these two grant periods, enabling neighborhoods to achieve full funding for a new amenity that might have previously been out of reach with the $50K or $100k limit. The Neighborhood Grant of $500-$5,000 will remain the same and is available on a rolling basis. Neighborhood grantees will have one year to complete their projects.

*Funding is allocated each year from ACL funds, and are designed for specific amenities or improvements (e.g., play equipment, basketball courts, or eco-projects) and are not meant for full park development or major infrastructure like swimming pools, restrooms, or splash pads. Please contact grants@austinparks.org to vet your project and understand the restrictions before you apply.
