DCA’s mission is to strengthen quality of life in the City of Los Angeles by stimulating and supporting cultural services and ensuring access to such activities for residents and visitors. A key method for DCA to advance the social and economic impact of the arts and ensures access to diverse cultural activities is through the organizational grant program for non-profit arts organizations.
The primary goal of DCA’s Organizational Grant Program is to invest in: arts/cultural festivals; festival collaborations between community service organizations and local arts organizations; nonprofit arts organization administrative operation projects; and nonprofit arts organization creative projects resulting in quantifiable sets of business/networking activities, culture/history presentations, dance concerts or classes, design/visual art exhibitions or museum projects, literature or publishing projects, media activities or presentations, music concerts or classes, outdoor festivals or parades, theatrical workshops or productions, traditional/folk arts activities or presentations, and/or multi-disciplinary arts activities. All DCA grant-funded services must support or culminate in activities which are A) free or low-cost, and B) open/accessible for community audiences and city visitors
