East Salinas

East Salinas Arts Grants

All art festivals, programs and cultural groups located in East Salinas are eligible to apply, thanks to funding from the David and Lucille Packard Foundation. (Please note: We only award one grant per organization per year.) Applications are accepted year-round, until all available funds have been awarded. Applicants may apply for every grant for which they are eligible within any fiscal year (July 1  – June 30).

The purpose of these grants is to further increase access and opportunity for East Salinas residents. Arts Council staff will also provide consultation and help selected groups connect with additional resources. The grants are for groups that may or may not have a 501(c)(3) designation but are organized with a board of directors or leadership committee.

Community Engagement Coordinator Berniz House will answer questions in English or Spanish at any time. Groups are welcome to apply anytime; requests will be reviewed monthly. Click on East Salinas grant application for more details (please download and fill out. The pdf application has filliable fields). Submit this completed form with the requested attachments to: Berniz@arts4mc.org. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Berniz at (831) 250 – 6184.
