The Building Cultural Diversity program supports new and emerging organizations whose mission, programs, staff, and board represent culturally diverse communities. Awards support arts programming and projects that celebrate communities’ unique arts and culture or preserve a culturally significant artistic tradition or practice. These awards help ensure a vibrant range of arts and cultural experiences are shared with residents, visitors, and communities, both today and in the future.
GRANT AWARDS: Applicants may request between $1,000 and $3,000. All awards require a 50 percent match, up to half of which may come from allowable in-kind donations. Applicants planning to use in-kind donations to supplement a match should consult OAC staff prior to submitting an application.
