Board of County Commissioners approves the
2018 Tourist Development Cultural Arts (TDC/A) Grants
SARASOTA, FL – The Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County is pleased to announce
that the Sarasota Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved the recommendations for
funding of the 2018 Tourist Development Cultural/Arts (TDC/A) Grants.
TDC/A grants come from a portion of the tourist tax dollars collected to fund Sarasota County
arts and cultural organizations in order to offer high quality programming that continues to
attract tourists to our area. Grants are available to organizations with recognized ability to
produce, present, and promote cultural and arts activities that appeal to tourists.
We wish to congratulate all of our organizations who will receive funding and thank the BCC
for their support of arts and culture in Sarasota County. For a complete list of organizations

“Our arts and cultural organizations have a major impact on tourism in our Region. The
Tourist Development Tax grants are critical for these organizations to continue to develop the
highest quality programming that helps increase tourism and economic impact through the
arts,” says Jim Shirley, executive director of the Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota
County.
