Four Grant Programs Now Open

The 2016 grant application season has launched! Guidelines and applications for four of our grant programs are now available, and another three will launch within the next two weeks (so stay tuned!). With ongoing assessment of our grant programs and the addition of new programs, all guidelines and applications have been revised this year. Please read eligibility and program requirements carefully.

Statewide and Regional Networks (SRN) supports service organizations that provide practical services to working artists and constituent organizations either regionally or across the state. Guidelines have been revised to clarify the definition of a regional network. Deadline: February 10, 2016

NEW GRANT PROGRAM! Artists Activating Communities (AAC) supports sustained artistic residencies in community settings, demonstrating the arts to be a central component of civic life and artists to be vital in shaping society.  AAC Projects are artist-driven, engage community members as active participants, and activate participants to develop and express their own creativity. Deadline: March 2, 2016

The JUMP StArts program supports high quality arts education and artists-in-residence programs for at-risk youth within the juvenile justice system. Activities may take place in classroom, after-school, social services or incarceration settings throughout the many diverse communities in California. New this year is the addition of a JUMP StArts planning grant opportunity, to support a limited number of initial plans to incorporate community arts resources into the ongoing educational offerings of the juvenile justice organization. Deadline: March 8, 2016

Creative California Communities (CCC) supports collaborative projects that harness arts and culture as a creative placemaking strategy. New this year is the addition of a CCC planning grant opportunity, to support a limited number of initial plans for creative placemaking partnerships. Deadline: March 30, 2016
