State-Local Partnership

Piece by Piece

The State-Local Partnership (SLP) program fosters cultural development on the local level through a partnership between the CAC and local arts agencies throughout the State. SLPs enable the creation, presentation, and preservation of the arts of all cultures to enrich the quality of life for all Californians.

Program Goals

State-Local partners are local arts agencies officially designated to provide financial support, services, or other programs to a variety of arts organizations, individual artists, and the diverse communities of their county.

SLPs promote cooperation and collaboration among county and city arts agencies in planning, programming, and policy development.


Next application cycle will be in the Fall of 2018.
