The Arts Council for Long Beach has four grant programs in full swing! The grant programs enliven the city by fostering a vibrant arts community. There are four distinct programs that offer support to a variety of programs throughout Long Beach. The Community Project, Operating I & II, and Artist Fellowship grant applications are all due July 8th! For more information check out the webpage here. Interested? Read more about our grants programs below and we hope to see your application soon!

The Community Project Grant program supports exemplary artistic, cultural, and arts educational projects in Long Beach. These projects must meet community needs and reflect the rich cultural diversity of the community.

Operating Grants I & II provide unrestricted, operating support to Long Beach-based arts and cultural organizations whose primary mission is to collect, preserve, present, and/or commission exemplary works of art (e.g. visual art exhibitions, theatre, dance, and/or musical performances). Works of art must be a regional significance, for the benefit of the general public, and provide educational opportunities that enable audiences to better understand and appreciate the arts.

The Artist Fellowship honors a selection of Long Beach’s living artists. These awards recognize exemplary artists for their recent work.  Eligible artists must reside in Long Beach and demonstrate an active exhibition and/or production record of at least 3 years. Awards are granted based on artistic merit and professional achievement.

ACLB’s Micro-Grant program accepts applications on the 15th of every month. These projects must be free, open to the public, and benefit the residents of Long Beach. The Micro-Grant program supports community representation, encourages cultural diversity, and enhances underserved communities. Professional Development Micro-Grants must enhance the organization’s or artist’s ability to serve the residents of Long Beach.
