The Los Angeles County Arts Commission contracts approximately 200 arts organizations annually through its Organizational Grants Program (OGP) to provide arts services. Made possible through the generosity of the Board of Supervisors, grants for concerts, theatre and dance productions, exhibitions, in-school and out-of-school arts education and core operations help these organizations enrich the lives of County residents in large and small communities alike. This program ensures that a wide variety of cultural services will continue to reach County residents. The Commission has made several changes to make the funding more flexible and the application process easier – including a new tool to help organizations calculate how much to request, new budget categories and deadlines. Workshops will be held throughout the County between September and October for new and returning applicants to the OGP. 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 a workshop before applying.

If you have any questions regarding OGP guidelines, eligibility or workshops, please contact Grants staff at 213-202-5858 or grants@arts.lacounty.gov. The Los Angeles County Arts Commission supports the arts sector in the County of Los Angeles through grants to nonprofit arts organizations and by providing professional development programs to both grantees and non-grantees of the Arts Commission.
