Grantee Opportunities

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. 


The Arts Commission contracts approximately 200 arts organizations annually through the Organizational Grant 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 insures that a wide variety of cultural services will continue to reach County residents

OGP provides two-year grants to nonprofit arts organizations and applications are accepted annually between the months from October to December. 

The current allocation of $4,318,000 for Fiscal Year 2013-14 represents a 4.85% increase in funding from 2011-12 (the last time this group was eligible to receive grants.) 

In addition, 93, or 48%, of 194 OGP grantees have applied for funding to pay for salaries or job creation. This will positively impact the residents of Los Angeles County through increased job opportunities.

Grantee Feedback


“Our OGP grant helped provide the compensation for our first executive director. This was a big step in changing the organization from an all volunteer-led organization for over 33 years.” - Hollywood Arts Council
