Statewide arts grant opportunities fund arts engagement and infrastructure to bolster well-being, resilience, and vitality of California’s arts workforce.

The California Arts Council (CAC) has announced the opening of its 2023 grant season, with online applications now being accepted for six grant programs.

The California Arts Council is a state agency with a mission of strengthening arts, culture, and creative expression as the tools to cultivate a better California for all. The Arts Council is California’s only public arts grants provider with funding that is accessible to all 58 California counties.

The California Arts Council 2023 grant program offerings have been carefully designed to benefit the whole of California’s arts and culture ecosystem, with focused considerations for first-time applicants, small and mid-size arts and organizations, folk and traditional art forms, county local arts agencies and arts service organizations, and balanced opportunities with deep investment for both general operating and project-based support.

“Much discussion, deep-thinking and active listening have brought us to where we are today, and we are so proud to announce that our 2023 grant season is now open to the ever-expanding landscape of arts and cultural organizations across our great state,” said CAC Executive Director Jonathan Moscone. “This scope of this year’s programs and their allocations were created with holistic intentions, and with the open ears and open hearts of our Council members and agency staff to the needs of our expansive and diverse communities.”
