The Urban Enhancement Trust Fund (UETF) awards funding to arts and cultural projects dedicated to enhancing the Albuquerque community.

UETF funds projects (not operating expenses) that meet the following guidelines:

  • All projects must take place within the Albuquerque city limits

Projects funded in the past include:

  • Arts/cultural educational workshops at community centers, schools, senior centers, and other public venues
  • Free performances, exhibits or cultural festivals
  • Audio, video or electronic productions
  • Oral histories, cultural research or plans
  • Historical or literary publications or programs

Amount: A total of $300,000 is available with grants ranging up to $12,000. Grants are awarded on a two-year cycle.

Eligibility: Proposals must be submitted by a non-profit, tax-exempt organization, an arts organization, or an appropriate fiscal sponsor. Applicants may submit up to three separate applications for consideration for funding.

Applications which involve student participation at schools during regular hours or offsite travel during the school day must include some indication of Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) support through: 1) support from a responsible representative of the administration of the schools involved; or 2) a statement from the teachers whose classes will be involved.
