More than $1 million per year of the Dallas Tourism Public Improvement District’s (DTPID) funds are awarded each year to support local arts and events happening in Dallas. Local arts and cultural groups have the opportunity to apply for up to $25,000 annually for funding incentives to help enrich Dallas through their events that will generate at least 30 overnight visits to Dallas.
Since the inception of the DTPID, more than $8 million has been contributed to 527 arts and culture initiatives. Training is held twice a year to educate groups on how to apply for the funding. Enriching the lives and experiences of visitors and residents alike, DTPID board members consider this support an important aspect of how everyone can benefit from a healthy tourism industry.
Dallas’s cultural institutions of all sizes long to share their arts initiatives and programs with audiences within the Dallas community and outside of the North Texas region. DTPID spurs tourist interest. Discover how a few arts partners got DTPID involved and helped offer support for marketing promotions.
