WHAT IS THE LA COUNTY PERFORMING ARTS Recovery GRANT?
is a new grant initiative designed to support the region’s dynamic performing arts sector. Through this initiative, the LA County Department of Arts and Culture will deliver $1.2 million in one-time funding to artists, independent producers, and organizations that have a demonstrated history of developing, producing, and/or presenting work in the performing arts disciplines such as dance, music, theater, and folk and traditional arts.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
The grant supports LA County‐based individual artists, independent producers, and small and mid-size performing arts organizations—including nonprofits, for-profits, fiscally sponsored organizations, and producing collectives that are part of the cultural community that performs regularly throughout the region at various indoor and outdoor venues or as part of a festival.
Depending on the applicant category (i.e., individuals or organizations), additional criteria must be met to be eligible for funding consideration. More information is available on the Center for Cultural Innovation’s webpage.
WHAT CAN FUNDING BE USED FOR?
The initiative will award grants of up to $30,000 to support the creation, documentation, and/or presentation of new or existing artistic work.
Competitive applicants will have a strong background in the performing arts, a supportive regional audience, and play a meaningful role in the local arts ecosystem in addition to reflecting the cultural and geographic diversity of Los Angeles County, the mission and values of the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture, and the goals of the LA County Performing Arts Recovery Grant initiative.
