Non-profit organizations located in selected areas of California are welcome to apply for funding for arts and culture programs. The goal of the funding is to provide support for contemporary productions, as opposed to the performance of famous musical pieces, or putting on a play or musical that originated on Broadway.

The Community Arts program supports organizations performing their work in San Francisco, Contra Costa, and Alameda counties (west of the Caldecott Tunnels), representing the fields of dance, theater, visual arts, music, festivals, poetry, literature, and publications. Films and videos are not eligible. Youth-performed or youth-oriented programs are not eligible.


Individual artists must work under a fiscal sponsor in order to be funded.

Before starting your grant application, please review the funding source's website listed below for updates/changes/addendums/conferences/LOIs.
