Current Grantees

The Ogden City Arts Advisory Committee has conducted the arts grant process including advertising to recruit applicants and reviewing and grading the applications. Ogden City Staff assembled a grant review subcommittee in accordance with Arts Advisory Committee Ordinance No. 2015-41 and formed a grading system for the subcommittee in compliance with the Ordinance allowing each grant application to be measured equally using the grant criteria as its guide. 

The City Council’s role in the grant process is to make a determination that the value of the tangible and intangible public benefits resulting from the proposed grants equal or exceed the monetary value of the grants. The council’s determination of value is presumably
correct: “[a] determination of value received, made by the [City Council], shall be presumed valid unless it can be shown that the determination was arbitrary, capricious, or illegal.” Utah Code Ann. §10-8-2-(3)(b).

Years 2018/19 saw funding in the amount of $80,000. The stated goal of the City Council is to continue to increase grant funds until they reach $100,000.
