Grant opportunity: Professional Development

Application season at the CAC isn't over yet! Our Professional Development program offers support of up to $1,000 for access to professional development resources and networks intended to strengthen the business acumen of arts organization employees. The deadline to apply for projects taking place between October 2018 and January 2019 is May 2. See our Professional Development program page for more information.

Arts and Accessibility program now open

The National Arts and Disability Center announced this week the launch of the 2018 Arts and Accessibility grants program, administered by the California Arts Council. The program seeks to enhance opportunities for participation in the arts by people with disabilities throughout California.

Grants for artists are intended to support the advancement of their creative work and careers. Artist grants are for specific projects that contribute directly to their professional goals and development. California-based arts organizations may also request support for the hiring or involvement of artists with disabilities in arts events, and/or to increase the attendance and enhance the experience for audiences with disabilities. Applications may be submitted through December 2018. Funding is contingent on the availability of funds. Visit our Arts and Accessibility program page to learn more.
