Arts Council of Placer County (ACPC) promotes and advocates for all arts across Placer County to enrich and help develop the artistic culture of this region of Northern California.
As the designated Arts Partner for Placer County and the California Arts Council, one designated scope of work is to administer these funds each fiscal year, as needed, and specified in our contracts with both the agencies listed above. Since 2018, over $500,000 has been awarded through the ACPC Community Grants Program, thanks largely in part to funding from Placer County and the California Arts Council, in addition to private donations.
The process of applying and receiving these funds has been approved for 2022/23, with new categories, eligibility and a weighted points system that will be utilized to establish a priority funding system of disbursement. Projects are funded according to the timelines below. Events and projects typically need to take place during the times listed. However, for those projects or events that require pre-funding, you can apply for a Period in advance.
Funds will be disbursed in four periods during 2022/23 to successful applicants meeting the criteria of each category, and subsequently approved for funding. Dates for submission are as follows:
