More information about our Fall 2018 Create Grant is available for download here.

NOTE FOR ARTS ORGANIZATIONS
Interested in applying for a Support Grant?

We are excited to be working closely with the Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County to combine our arts organization grant processes into one. Funding amounts will stay steady, and we’ll be streamlining the process to only one application, not two. This change means that the Support Grant Cycle won’t open for a few more months. We expect the new combined cycle to go live in January 2019, with grants announced in Spring 2019.

For more information please contact Hannah Garcia, Grants Program Manager, 831-475-9600 x16 or hannah@artscouncilsc.org. We recommend all applicants plan to attend an orientation session and prepare early to avoid technical difficulties.
