It's easy to include nonprofit, fundraising, educational or charity events gran California's arts grant season has begun, the California Arts Council announced today. Applications are open for 15 of the agency's grant programs, with funding available for youth programs, creative projects and operating support. Grants are intended to strengthen the capacity of organizations providing arts engagement to all of California's residents, including students, veterans, communities of color, low- income and rural communities, system-engaged youth, individuals with disabilities, formerly incarcerated individuals and more. Support from state government for the arts in California has grown steadily since 2013. Additional state funds allow the agency to better address the cultural and creative needs of California's large and diverse population. An estimated $21.3 million is slated to be awarded to this year's grant recipients -- $5 million more than in the prior fiscal year. The 2018-19 grant season marks the return of Creative California Communities, the California Arts Council's creative placemaking program as well as Research in the Arts, supporting original research on the value and impact of the arts. Both programs run on a two-year cycle, with grants awarded every other year. The launch also includes the agency's newest grant program, Youth Arts Action, offering support for arts projects for youth outside of school time and building upon the Arts Education Extension program that piloted from 2016 to 2018. Also new to this year's offerings is the ability for availa le applicant organizations without 501(c)(3) nonprofit status to utilize a fiscal sponsor across ever program category, previously allowed for most but not all of the California Arts Council grant programs. "We are excited to announce another season of grant opportunities for the protectors and promoters of arts and culture in our state," said Anne Bown-Crawford, California Arts Council Executive Director. "We are also elated to have more than $5 million in additional funding to offer to these dedicated groups out there doing the work. We're making a concerted effort to welcome the small but mighty grassroots organizations, to catalyze powerful cross-sector partnerships, to extend our reach within the arts and culture community, and to continue to grow our grantee family." Throughout October and November, the California Arts Council will host a series of online webinars, in addition to in-person workshops in various locations across the state, to provide general and program-specific information and aid in the application process for interested organizations. The California Arts Council invests in nonprofit and government organizations that keep the state's artistic energy thriving and encourage the health and vibrancy of its communities. Details for the 2018-19 grant opportunities now available are below.
