Arts Grants Guidelines

The Arts Council is honored to provide support to nonprofit arts programs through grant funding to presenters, cultural groups and professional artists — thanks to funding by the Monterey County Board of Supervisors through the Economic Development Department. The Arts Council grant funds are awarded on a competitive review basis each year based on overall impact and level of service to Monterey County families. Applicants may apply for every grant for which they are eligible within any fiscal year (July 1  – June 30).
