We have revised some of our long-standing grant categories in order to be more flexible and responsive in these uncertain times, and to prioritize communities of color most impacted by COVID-19.
Cultural Equity Initiative (CEI) grants provide multi-year general operating support, giving more flexibility and grant dollars to organizations to meet community needs in new ways.
San Francisco Artists (SFA), formerly Individual Artist Commissions, is now open to artists working in all genres, acknowledging the multi-disciplinary work of many artists. This grant program includes opportunities to support projects previously funded by Organizational Project Grants.
Organization Project Grants (OPG) is on hiatus this year due to the uncertainty of venue re-opening schedules.
The SFAC offers three new grant programs through the Arts Impact Endowment, as well as a state-funded community response grant.
