Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $1,000 to California arts organizations, individual arts professionals, and individuals representing arts organizations in eligible locations for professional development opportunities and for projects that benefit local residents. Funding is intended to support community projects that are free, open to the public, and benefit underserved communities. Grants will also support attendance at professional development seminars, workshops, and training courses that are designed to enhance the applicant's professional skills. Eligible projects must be located in the City of Long Beach and benefit the Long Beach arts and cultural sector.

Two types of grants are offered:

  1. Project Microgrants are available for local projects that support community representation and cultural respect; encourage cultural diversity; and/or enhance underserved communities, neighborhoods or populations of Long Beach.
  2. Professional Development Grants are for individual arts professionals and individuals representing a Long Beach arts organization to participate in a workshop, seminar, class or training geared towards enhancing the professional skills of the applicant on behalf of their sponsoring organization or for enhancing the marketing/business/professional skills of an individual artist. Funded professional development opportunities must enhance the organization’s or artist’s ability to serve Long Beach residents. Successful applications will demonstrate that the opportunity benefits the applicant, the applicant’s organizations and/or the Long Beach community, particularly underserved communities, neighborhoods or populations. Applicants can apply for support to attend a workshop announced through Arts Council for Long Beach or present the Arts Council with an unaffiliated workshop/professional development opportunity as part of the grant application.
