Grant Programs & Applications
Creating a better tomorrow means being here for the arts today.
This is a time of unexpected and unprecedented changes to the ways in which each of us work, communicate, connect, and experience our everyday lives. As your state arts agency, the California Arts Council is prioritizing this year’s grant funding to nurture and heal our communities through the arts; to keep the doors of our arts and cultural institutions open; to protect jobs in the creative field; and to preserve our cultural heritage, our stories, and our culture bearers.
