Welcome to MARGO, the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture Grant's Portal

The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture's grants program is part of the Office's Grants and Community Engagement portfolio and supports organizations that have as their primary purpose and function, the creation, performance, and exhibition of arts or cultural programs. MARGO (Municipal Arts Resources Grants Online) is the online grants portal where prospective organizations can apply for general and/or project support and panelists can review applications.

Grants are awarded on a competitive basis. Past grant awards are no assurance of future awards. Applicants--part​icularly first-time applicants--are strongly encouraged to contact Office of Arts and Culture Grants staff to discuss/review your organization's project proposal prior to the application deadline.

Visit the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture to learn more and for staff contact information.
