Informational Grants Webinar Tomorrow!

The webinar will be archived online for those who cannot participate.

Six Programs Accepting Applications Now!

Six of our grant programs are now open for applications - with eight more opening in the near future. As a result of increased state arts funding, this year we'll award more grants than we have in 13 years as we support projects in 14 unique grant programs. In fact, we may award as many as 1,000 grants this fiscal year... that's more than triple the number of grants awarded annually in the past! On top of that, the maximum grant request amount has increased in nearly all our programs. 

The following grant programs are currently accepting applications:

ARTISTS ACTIVATING COMMUNITIES: Up to $18,000 for artist residencies in community settings.

ARTISTS IN SCHOOLS: Up to $18,000 supporting students' overall well-being and academic achievement through arts engagement. New categories offered this year supporting PreK, field trips, afterschool and summer programs!

CREATIVE CALIFORNIA COMMUNITIES: Up to $50,000 a year for small and mid-sized organizations and up to $75,000 a year for large organizations to support collaborative creative placemaking projects. Now a two-year grant program!
