Applications Now Open for the Arts Council’s 2023 Arts Express Grant Program!
We are excited to announce the launch of our 2023 Arts Express Grant Program. The goal of the Arts Express Grant Program is to promote artistic and cultural engagement, accessibility, equity and diversity in San Benito County. Local artists, art groups, arts and cultural organizations, and public school teachers are invited to apply for project-based funding for activities that take place between November 1, 2023- June 30, 2024 and are for the benefit of San Benito County residents. The deadline to apply is 5 pm, Friday, September 29, 2023.
Individual artists, arts organizations and cultural groups may apply for up to $2,500 in grant funding with no matching funds required. Public school teachers may request up to $500 in support through our Teacher Grants, which may be used for class field trips to museums, performances and other cultural venues, for art supplies, curriculum, guest artists and other allowable expenditures.
To learn more about this year’s Arts Express Grant Program, prospective applicants are encouraged to join the Arts Council for a Virtual Grant Workshop on Zoom, Thursday, September 7th at 5 pm. Watch a recording of the Workshop here. Pre-registration is not required.
