Community Arts Grant Program Deadline Extended

The Visalia Community Arts Grant Program - a program of the City in partnership with the Arts Consortium - has extended the deadline for 2017 applications.

The Community Arts Grant Program focuses on developing local cultural resources, and supporting programs and activities that reach diverse segments of the community. The Community Grants Program identifies two types of grants for funding: Seed Grants and Community Support Grants. Grant requests can range from $250 to $1,500 per grant year.

The Program supports activities that represent and celebrate diverse traditions in music, dance, theater, literature and visual arts. Priority for both categories is given to programs that are innovative, unique, and promote community engagement. At least 50 percent of the total funding must be awarded to new projects that will expand and enhance the arts in Visalia.

Ready to apply? Both organizations and individuals may apply, but all proposed events/projects must take place in Visalia and must be open to the general public or for a specific population of the general public. All applicants must have matching funds and verification is required. For additional details on eligibility, review criteria and much more, review the Grant Form.

Completed applications must be recieved no later than 12 p.m. on Friday, January 13, 2017. For more information, contact the Arts Consortium at 400 N. Church St., Visalia, CA 93291, or visit them online at
