The 2021-22 Second Supervisorial District Arts and Culture Recovery Grant Program is administered by the LA County Department of Arts and Culture. The one-time program will award funds to support nonprofit and fiscally sponsored organizations located in the Second Supervisorial District. Grant awards will be based on eligibility and available funding. Awards will range based on the number of applications received, organizational budget size, and planned programming during the grant period.
This program will support the rich diversity of artistic and cultural expression in the Second Supervisorial District through critical funding for established and emerging organizations that have made a significant impact on LA’s cultural landscape and the cultural fabric of the District through one-time general operating grants to be awarded by October 1, 2021 for a term of one year. Grant recipients will also have the opportunity to participate in peer learning and professional development sessions as part of the grant requirements.
To promote cultural and racial equity, the program will give priority to organizations that contribute to LA County’s cultural diversity and those rooted in and serving underserved and communities of color, including Black, Latinx, Asian, and Indigenous communities. It will be open to existing Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture grantees, non-grantees, and emerging organizations located in the Second District.
