The 2018-19 Advancement Grant guidelines and application is now available!

Interested school districts must submit a funding request via the LA County Arts Commission’s new online grant portal by 6:00PM, Wednesday, March 14, 2018. The Arts Commission strongly recommends submitting the application at least five days prior to the deadline to give ample time to troubleshoot. New applicants to the portal must register a user account in order to access the Advancement Grant funding request. Please review the Application Instructions below prior to accessing the portal.

Applications submitted late or with section(s) blank will be deemed ineligible and will not be considered for funding.
