A grant application workshop for Creative Recovery LA, a new grant program created to address pandemic impacts on the nonprofit arts sector. Through this new initiative the Department of Arts and Culture will award over $26 million in American Rescue Plan funds to deliver financial relief and recovery to the nonprofit arts and culture sector. This workshop will include information about the program, guidelines, eligibility requirements, and tips on submitting strong proposals. This workshop will cover everything nonprofit organizations will need to prepare in order to apply online when the application opens in January 2023.
Creative Recovery LA includes five grant opportunities:
- Arts Relief and Recovery Grant
- Creative Works and Jobs for Artists Grant
- Reopening Culture, Tourism and Marketing Grant
- Creative Career Pathways for Youth Grant
- Arts for Justice-Involved Youth Grant
Who is Eligible?
LA County-based 501(c)3 nonprofit and Model A fiscally sponsored organizations that are arts focused, or have a demonstrated history of arts programming, may be eligible to apply for up to five grant opportunities through a single, streamlined application process. You do not need to be a current grantee of the Department of Arts and Culture.
While all eligible organizations may apply and be awarded, Creative Recovery LA will use an equity framework to prioritize applicant organizations based on their geographic location and budget size. More detail will be available in the program guidelines.
