This season marks the return of Creative California Communities, our creative placemaking program, as well as Research in the Arts, supporting original research on the value and impact of the arts. We’re also excited to announce the launch of our newest grant program, Youth Arts Action, offering support for arts projects for youth outside of school time, and building upon the Arts Education Extension program that piloted from 2016 to 2018.

Also new this year is the ability for applicant organizations without 501(c)(3) nonprofit status to utilize a fiscal sponsor across every program category — an option previously allowed for most but not all grant programs.
