OGP Application And Technical Assistance Workshops
Workshops take place throughout the County between September and October for new and returning OGP applicants. These workshops include information about the program, recently updated guidelines, eligibility requirements, and tips on submitting strong proposals. New applicants, and applicants that did not receive funding the last time they applied, are required to attend an OGP workshop. PLEASE NOTE: a technical assistance workshop does not count toward this requirement.
Arts Commission Staff make workshop Powerpoint presentations available for all grantseekers. PLEASE NOTE: Reviewing these slides does not fulfill the attendance requirements.
Beginning in fall 2018, all applicants to the Organizational Grants 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 new requirement, the Arts Commission is offering a number of free, workshops designed to help you either clarify and begin outlining your organization’s relationship to cultural equity and inclusion, or to deepen the policies you already have in place.
Please Note: Attendance at the CEII workshop does not count toward the OGP application workshop requirement for new applicants or applicants that did not receive funding the last time they applied.
