Arts and cultural opportunities fund arts engagement and infrastructure with focus on agency’s stated values

The California Arts Council launched its 2024 grant season today, opening eight different funding opportunities for application submissions from eligible arts organizations now through June 6.

The California Arts Council (CAC) is a state agency with a mission of strengthening arts, culture, and creative expression as the tools to cultivate a better California for all. The Arts Council is California’s only public arts grants provider with funding that is accessible to all 58 California counties.

“We are thrilled to share that our 2024 grant season is now open!” said CAC Executive Director Danielle Brazell. “This year’s program guidelines, as approved by the Council, reflect the CAC’s commitment to advancing arts, culture, and creativity in the state in alignment with our core values. Through our robust grantmaking portfolio, the CAC continues expand universal access to and participation in the arts for all in the great state of California.”

The CAC’s 2024 grant program offerings were selected and developed with several of the agency’s stated values in mind, among them accessibility, autonomy with accountability, equity, and sustainability. New and varying policies for eligibility have been implemented across each of the eight programs in an effort to achieve maximum benefit and broadest impact across the state. These include caps on organizational revenue and restrictions on applying for multiple project-based grants under the Arts & Youth programs umbrella. More details can be found on the webpages for each individual grant program.
