Texas Offers Grants For Free Concerts

A new live music grant program has been launched by the Texas Music Office, a division of the Office of the Governor. The new grants would provide free live music concerts across the state with no money coming from taxpayers. The program is made possible by a settlement from the Compact Disc Minimum Advertised Price Antitrust litigation. Grant applicants must partner with a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization like the newly formed Lubbock Music Association or a city or county government office willing to pay the upfront cost of the concert. The nonprofit or city/county government organization will then be reimbursed by the Texas Music Office once the grant is approved. More than 173,000 dollars is available with the maximum amount per concert being 1,500.00 dollars. Texas Music Office also operates the Specialty License Plate program, which awards funds to in-need school children for music lessons or music instruments purchased from a Texas retailer. To date, this program has provided $63,000 to Texas schools.
