FY 2016-2017 Community Grants (CG) Program Guidelines


The Community Grants (CG) Program is responsive on a quarterly basis to not-for-profit organizations developing small and large-scale community-based cultural (dance, theater, music, visual arts) programs, as well as projects and events, such as fairs, parades, neighborhood festivals, conferences and publications that have a strong artistic component. The CG panel considers projects with strong community involvement and/or outreach component. Arts organizations not meeting these criteria should consider applications to other Department programs. The CG Program is particularly sensitive to the needs of indigenous cultural neighborhood activities and projects encouraging the preservation of heritage, traditions and culture, as well as social service organizations and cultural groups developing collaborative intervention projects using the arts.


Mandatory Pre-Application Requirements:  All first-time applicants must attend a CG Workshop and schedule a consultation with the program administrator. Workshops will also cover user registration and navigation of Culture Grants Online (CGO), the Department's grants management system.

Returning applicants must schedule a consultation with the program administrator.
