Grants starting at $5,000 to California arts and culture nonprofits for general operating assistance to support activities in the City of San Diego. Applicants must complete a request for qualification before applying. Proposals should emphasize programs and services that enhance tourism and the economy, and improve the quality of life for City residents.
The Organizational Support Program (OSP) is the annual process of accepting and evaluating applications from nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations requesting TOT funding for general operating support with an emphasis on the delivery of programs and services that impact San Diego’s quality of life and tourism.

OSP applicants are typically awarded between 2%-13% of their annual operating income (AOI). The minimum award amount an applicant can receive is $5,000.
The grant period runs from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020.
The City will only exercise the option to renew for two consecutive years; for example, if an applicant held a contract for FY18 funding cycle, and that was renewed in FY19, the applicant could request a second option to renew for FY20 funding cycle. If that option was granted the applicant would not be eligible for a contract renewal for the FY21 funding cycle.
