The Los Angeles County Arts Commission has announced $4,518,000 in two-year grants to 216 nonprofit arts organizations through its Organizational Grant Program (OGP). Since its inception in 1947, the arts commission has provided funding for arts and culture programming. For the last 20 years, the OGP has extended that support to include local small and mid-size arts organizations providing cultural services for the benefit of the more than 10 million residents of LA County.

On Tuesday, May 15, the LA County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to create the first-ever LA County department for arts and culture. The motion, co-authored by Supervisors Mark Ridley-Thomas and Sheila Kuehl, instructs the County to transition the LA County Arts Commission to a stand-alone County department starting July 1, 2018 and complete the transition by fiscal year 2019-20.
