Artists, arts groups and arts and cultural organizations are offered a variety of resources and grant opportunities to encourage their growth and to broaden their offerings to the Sacramento arts communities.

Because the Arts Commission re-grants public dollars, our programs are always open to any and all artists and arts groups that wish to apply for a grant with us.

Each application is treated with the same transparent professionalism that exists in all of our processes. Funding decisions are not made by staff. Staff enforce equal access and inclusiveness as they facilitate the evaluation process through peer review panels.

Applicants have to spend time writing their applications, answering questions, and providing information that may seem redundant and can be hard to put together. All of this keeps the Arts Commission highly accountable to the public.

The Arts Commission offers grant programs targeted at Sacramento County nonprofit arts and cultural organizations.
