Grant deadlines are just around the corner!

Don't miss these upcoming deadlines for our grant programs:

A new pilot grant program, Cultural Pathways (CP) is rooted in the California Arts Council's commitment to serving the needs of an increasingly demographically complex California, and the belief that a healthy arts ecosystem reflects contributions from all of California's diverse populations. This program provides two years of operating support and a host of technical assistance and professional development activities to small and emerging organizations rooted in communities of color, recent immigrant and refugee communities, or tribal groups.  Deadline: March 30, 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

Our Professional Development and Consulting grant program (PDC) is back for a second year! The PDC program assists arts organizations in building their capacity for success through professional development or consulting services. The Council has increased its allocated investment in the PDC program in response to high demand from the field, offering up to triple the number of grants this year. Guidelines and application are available now. Deadline: April 21, 2016
