The Arts Commission provides two-year grants to approximately 200 arts organizations annually to provide arts services. Made possible by the Board of Supervisors, grants for concerts, theatre and dance productions, exhibitions, in-school and out-of-school arts education and core operations help small, medium and large organizations enrich the lives of County residents.
Workshops will be held throughout the County between September and November for new and returning applicants to the OGP. These workshops include information about the program, recently updated guidelines, eligibility requirements and tips on submitting strong proposals. New applicants and applicants that did not receive funding the last time they applied are required to attend a workshop.
