Grants to California nonprofit arts organizations in eligible areas to improve or develop cultural and arts facilities. Preference is given to organizations whose work is reflective of historically marginalized communities. Funding may be used for pre-planning and planning for the acquisition or development of facilities, or for capital improvements to arts facilities to address emergency and safety situations including compliance with COVID-19 related health orders, and/or improve or enhance the creative space. Applicant organizations must be based in San Francisco.
The Creative Space (CRSP) grant program supports the enhancement of San Francisco cultural facilities through Planning and Facility Improvement Grants. The category aims to improve existing arts facilities and develop new ones that will support the work of San Francisco’s arts organizations and artists.
Priority funding goes to organizations that foster artistic expression deeply rooted in and reflective of historically marginalized communities. Using both the Cultural Equity Endowment Legislation and the Grantmakers in the Arts’ “Racial Equity in Arts Funding: Statement of Purpose and Recommendations for Action,” these communities include: African and African American; Latinx; Asian and Asian American; Arab; Native American; Pacific Islander; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer; Transgender and Gender Variant People; People with Disabilities; and Women.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all activities hosted by the Arts Commission will be online until further notice.
