Grants of up to $1,000 and grants starting at $1,001 to Redwood City, California nonprofit organizations for programs, events, and activities that enhance art and culture within the City. Funding is intended for the following areas of priority:

- Development of the downtown area as the City's cultural center
- Events that celebrate diversity
- Art for youth and programs that focus on a senior audience
- Public art and support of local arts organizations, and securing alternative funding sources for the arts.
- Alternative funding sources for the arts

The Civic Cultural Commission has set-up guidelines to allocate funds as follows:
- Large Grants ($1,001 or more, all applicants reviewed once per year) = $40,000
- Small Grants ($1,000 or less, up to twice per fiscal year) = $9,000
- Commission Events (Amounts may vary) = $9,896

The Redwood City Civic Cultural Commission will give additional consideration to a grant request if the requesting organization has applied for matching funds; the grant provides increased support of new programs/projects with diminishing funding for ongoing programs. There is an emphasis on benefiting a large amount of people for a reasonable cost; and seeing benefits that come back to Redwood City, such as providing outreach to Redwood City residents.
