Grants

Since 1978, OCA&H has assisted in funding Arts programming in Odessa and Ector County
through a combination of City of Odessa Hotel/Motel Tax funds and privately raised money. Grant money is used to fund marketing, hotel rooms, and other expenses related to operating costs or special programming.

Member organizations can apply for a larger Annual Grant once a year, or a smaller Mini-Grant anytime during the calendar year.
