Community Grants

2019 Grant Applications are now OPEN!


Community Arts Grants support the arts and cultural activities of artists and community organizations in service to residents and visitors of Placer County. These activities increase the value of the arts as an integral part of the community and make the arts accessible to all. These grants are made possible with public funds from Placer County, the California Arts Council, fundraisers and private donations, and administered locally by The Arts Council of Placer County (ACPC).

In 2018, Community Arts Grants administered through ACPC totaled over $80,000, and over $85,000 is expected to be awarded through the 2019 program.

Please consult with the Arts Council of Placer County Executive Director to determine if your application meets all the eligibility requirements.
Jim Crosthwaite, ACPC Executive Director
