The Community Cultural Grant provides general operating support to nonprofit organizations in Volusia County that have as their primary mission the delivery of cultural or heritage-based programs to the public. In 2017, more than $611,000 was awarded to 32 organizations.

Applications must be submitted online by 5 p.m. Friday, April 20. The Cultural Council will review and score the grant applications on Friday, June 1, to provide recommendations to the Volusia County Council.
