Eight grant programs now open!

The 2016 grant application season is underway. Guidelines and applications for eight of our grant programs are now available. 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.

New this week:

Artists in Schools (AIS) supports projects that integrate community arts resources -- artists and professional art organizations  -- into comprehensive, standards-based arts-learning at school sites. New this year, we have added an optional Professional Development grant category to support co-learning opportunities for teaching artists, classroom teachers, and school administrators. Professional Development projects may supplement AIS residencies for students, or may stand alone.  Deadline: March 10, 2016. http://arts.ca.gov/programs/ais.php

Arts and Accessibility Technical Assistance Grants Program: The California Arts Council, in partnership with the National Arts and Disability Center, is pleased to announce that funds are now available for the 2016-17 Arts and Accessibility Technical Assistance Grants Program. Funds are available effective January 2016 - June 2016. http://arts.ca.gov/programs/access.php
