Grants of up to $20,000 to California nonprofit organizations, veterans' assistance agencies, and arts-based units of government to provide arts programs to military veterans and their families. Funding is intended to enhance the quality of life for state veterans by increasing their access to quality arts programs that are sensitive and responsive to their unique experiences.
The Veterans in the Arts program is rooted in the CAC’s vision to create a state where the arts are a central component of daily life and accessible to all. Through this program, the CAC desires to specifically address the needs and improve the lives of California’s veterans through arts, culture, and creative expression.
The purpose of the Veterans in the Arts program is to increase equity, access, and opportunities for veterans to participate in quality arts programming that is sensitive and responsive to their unique experiences. The program provides project support for nonprofit arts organizations, local arts agencies, veteran’s assistance agencies, and social service agencies to reach veterans and their families. Projects include the perspective of one or more local veterans as active participants in the design, planning, and implementation of a project.
