Statewide and Regional Networks

Advocates for Indigenous California Language Survival

The Statewide and Regional Networks (SRN) program is rooted in the California Arts Council’s (CAC) vision to nurture collaborative service organizations and networks that advance the arts and artists in the state. An arts service organization provides specialized, practical services to working artists, constituent organizations and cultural communities.

  • Culturally specific, multicultural, discipline-based and multi-discipline statewide and regional arts networks and arts service organizations are eligible to apply.
  • Applicant organization must have at least a two-year track record of developing its field and providing services to its constituent base.
  • Applicant must be a nonprofit organization, unit of government, or use a fiscal sponsor with approval of Program Specialist.
  • Grantees of the State-Local Partnership Program (SLP) may not apply for SRN support, unless the SLP is acting as a fiscal agent for a distinct network that is not supported by the CAC through the SLP program.
