California Arts Council (CAC)
Grant to a California nonprofit arts and cultural organization, arts-based government agency, or tribal government to coordinate a grant-distribution program during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to support a project administrator who will manage a regranting program that provides rapid relief support grants to artists and cultural practitioners of color who have been significantly impacted by the pandemic.
The Administering Organization (AO) will be responsible for the planning and implementation of the rapid relief grant program, including but not limited to the development of program components and timeline; implementing statewide and culturally specific engagement strategies to priority communities and trusted culture bearers; regular reporting to and collaborating with the CAC on expanded outreach to ensure diverse statewide representation of applicants; management of the application processes for artists through implementation, screening applications, award management, and regular reporting to the CAC.
The CAC will be responsible for distributing funds to the AO for regranting and program administration. The CAC will partner with the AO to develop an oversight plan for the CAC that will include providing input and approval on program development and implementation. The CAC expects to participate in bi-weekly check-in meetings with the AO, at minimum. The CAC will also conduct a program evaluation to document the impact of the program
