About California Arts Council Grant Programs
As announced earlier this month, the Arts Council invested $16.3 million in arts programming statewide for the 2017-18 fiscal year. In 2017-18, a total of 1,080 grants were awarded for projects spanning the Arts Council’s 14 unique program categories, benefiting California’s students, artists, veterans, system-engaged youth, formerly incarcerated individuals, historically marginalized populations, and communities at large. Arts Council grant programs are administered through a multi-step, public process. Following an open call for applications, all submissions are adjudicated by peer review panels made up of experts from the arts field.
Interested members of the public, artists, arts organizations, and community leaders are encouraged to subscribe to the California Arts Council’s newsletter to learn about future grant opportunities as details become available.
About the California Arts Council’s Arts in Corrections Program
The state budget supports California’s Arts in Corrections program, as a part of the state’s multi-tiered investment in public safety, with an $8 million investment for the 2018-19 fiscal year. The California Arts Council’s Arts in Corrections program provides critical rehabilitative arts services to California’s incarcerated population and is made possible by an interagency partnership with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). Currently in its fifth year, the program now reaches every CDCR adult institution in California and addresses the state’s critical public safety needs and priorities through the arts.
