Grants Administration Division
Providing grant support to LA’s rich and diverse arts and cultural organizations and individual artists is the core service provided by the Department of Cultural Affairs. The Grants Administration Division awards approximately $4.2 million annually to nurture and support community service providers and community artists in Los Angeles. Awards are given to large, mid-size, small, and emerging organizations. Grants are available in a variety of disciplines and categories including dance, music, media, and visual arts, as well as literature, educational programs, residencies, and professional fellowships. The goal of the Grants Administration Division is to provide a diverse portfolio of high-quality free or low-cost services for residents and visitors of all ages throughout the City. Support ranges from $1,000 to $75,000 per project, based on published criteria. DCA selects grantees through a competitive peer review process.
