Statewide and Regional Networks

Purpose: What is the intended impact of this program?
The Statewide and Regional Networks (SRN) program intends to contribute to the health and vitality of the creative workforce in California by creating a resilient network of arts service organizations and artists.

An arts service organization is defined as an organization that furthers the interests of artists, creators, tradition bearers, and arts and cultural organizations. They also provide specialized, practical services for artists, arts organizations, and cultural communities.

Eligibility: Who can apply?

  • Applicants must be an arts service organization with statewide or regional reach as stated in Program Definitions. First-time applicants to this program are highly encouraged to consult with the managing Arts Program Specialist prior to application submission.
  • CAC State-Local Partner grantees are not eligible for Statewide and Regional Networks support in the same fiscal year, with the exception of a State-Local Partner serving as a Fiscal Sponsor for a distinct network that is not supported through the State-Local Partners program.

Eligible Request Amounts
Applicant organizations can request up to $35,000.
