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. 

WHAT WE FUND

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 November. 

In 2014, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission announced $4,518,000 in two-year grants to 180 nonprofit arts organizations through its Organizational Grant Program (OGP). For the second year in a row, the allocation represented a $200,000 increase in funding from the previous grant cycle.

In addition, 98, or 50%, of 194 OGP grantees applied for funding to pay for salaries or job creation. This will positively impact the residents of Los Angeles County through increased job opportunities.

“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
