2022 Arts Tourism Grant 

Nonprofit arts organizations who offer quality programs benefiting the citizens of Frisco and increasing arts tourism to Frisco qualify for the annual Arts Tourism grants. The funding for these grants comes from a percentage of the Hotel Occupancy Tax, paid for by visitors to Frisco and approved by the Frisco City Council. The City of Frisco's Arts Tourism grant is managed by Frisco Arts.

Pre-Covid, the City of Frisco approved $175,000 in arts grants bringing quality music, dance, theatre, film, and visual art to Frisco. For the 2022-2023 Season, the City Council has approved a total of $100,000 towards the Arts Tourism grant program. All funded programs must occur in the City of Frisco to increase arts tourism.

The City Council voted to keep the Arts Tourism Grant Fund at the reduced $100,000 for the 2022 program year, funded by the Community Development Corporation.
