Grants for the arts

Submitted By Guy Ashley

The Alameda County Arts Commission announces the release of the 2014 ARTSFUND Grants Program Application Packet for Alameda County-based nonprofit organizations.

The ARTSFUND Grants Program supports all types of arts programming such as dance, literature, media arts, music, theater, visual arts, and multidisciplinary arts programs presented in Alameda County by Alameda County nonprofit organizations.

During the 2014 funding cycle, between 40-50 arts organizations may be awarded grants. The Alameda County Arts Commission, a division of the County of Alameda, is dedicated to improving the quality of life in Alameda County by nurturing a thriving environment for the arts, promoting economic opportunities for Alameda CountyÕs artists and arts organizations, and encouraging public participation in the arts.
