The Recommendation


All cultural organizations receiving LA County funds must now have written, board-adopted statements, policies, or plans that outline their commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and access.

Implementation


As of Fall 2018, all applicants to the Organizational Grant Program are required to submit board-adopted statements, policies, or plans that outline their commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access as part of their applications. To assist grantees with preparing for this requirement, Arts and Culture began offering free workshops for current and potential OGP grantees to help prepare for this requirement in March of 2018. These workshops are designed to help organizations either clarify and begin outlining thier relationship to cultural equity and inclusion, or to deepen the policies are already in place.
