In Need of Funding?

Council District 11 is brimming with creative, imaginative and talented people dedicated to providing our community with arts and cultural programs. It's so nice to be able to spread the word that the City of Los Angeles, through its Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), is preparing to receive grant applications from non-profit arts and cultural organizations.

The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs just released its annual grant application booklet for non-profit arts/cultural organizations. 501c3 organizations may apply for partial funding of their public projects that take place in the City of Los Angeles between July 1, 2007 and June 30, 2008. These proposed projects should foster active community participation, promote intercultural exchange or/or offer geographic dispersion of high-quality arts/cultural programs for any one or several types of resident or tourist audiences.

Projects may include, but are not limited to: dance concerts or dance classes; literature events or publications; film festivals, public television or media programs; music concerts or music classes, theatrical plays or theater workshops; folk arts projects or cultural heritage presentations; museum programs or design exhibitions; arts education or variety art series; and outdoor festivals.

Grants generally range from $1000 to $75,000, depending upon the size of the applicant organization and the peer review score for the proposal.

Application review and ranking will take approximately eight months. Applicants will receive panel feedback and/or a City contract for selected services by May 1, 2007.

PLEASE NOTE: Applications must be postmarked by Friday, August 11, 2006.

Guideline booklets are available at our Westchester and West Los Angeles field offices, all City branch libraries, through the mail (send self addressed envelope pre-stamped with one dollar postage to: DCA Grant Program Office, 201 N. Figueroa Street, Suite 1400, LA CA 90012), on DCA's website www.culturela.org and at community workshops.

DCA also offers grants for Individual Artists (booklets available in mid-September with deadlines in late October) and a support program specifically for Outdoor Festival/Parade Partnerships (booklets available in early November with Deadline of December 8, 2007).

Act now...this could be a terrific chance for your organization to get some much needed financial help.
