grants for nonprofit organizations

Arts & Cultural Nonprofit Recovery Program (Currently closed)

Nonprofit arts and cultural organizations are a key element of the creative economy in the Sacramento County and key drivers of educational, economic, and community benefit. The City of Sacramento has set aside $2 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Reinvestment Funds with the County of Sacramento providing a match of $2 million in ARPA funds, to support a recovery grant program for arts and cultural nonprofits in Sacramento County. The application process, selection of grantees, and disbursement of funding will be overseen by the Office of Arts & Culture.

Cultural Equity Investment (Currently closed)

Cultural Equity Investment (CEI) Grants are one-year awards for organizations that represent and provide programming for inclusive culturally diverse communities, with the potential for up to two-year grant extension pending funding and grantee’s continued good standing with the City of Sacramento. Funds must be used to build capacity towards sustainability; funds may be used to support general operating and programming costs, with other allowable expenses including artist fees, training or workshop costs, marketing, and planning and evaluation costs. All applicants must possess nonprofit status and need to be registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, must be authentically representative of the populations they serve, and not have been a recipient of CEI in the past 10 years.

Cultural Arts Awards (CAA) (Currently closed)

The Cultural Arts Awards (CAA) program assists Sacramento City and County nonprofit arts and cultural organizations with partial funding in support of general operating expenses.
CAA grants are awarded through a competitive review process, ensuring that grantees meet high standards of artistic impact, community impact, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and sound managerial and fiscal accountability. The grant cycle for CAA 2022 - 24 is now closed.
