Adaptation & CARES Grants NOW OPEN!

Arts Council Napa Valley Opens Winter 2020 Adaptation & CARES Grant Applications

NAPA, Calif. (Dec 1, 2020) — Are you an individual artist or small 501 c3 arts & culture organization seeking ways to adapt your work to the current climate? Arts Council Napa Valley opens two granting applications this winter: Adaptation & CARES grants.

ACNV’s Adaptation Grants will provide funds for individual artists and small organizations (budget of $100,000 or less) to address the challenges introduced or made worse by the pandemic, economic downturn, and racial justice reckonings of 2020. The purpose is to ensure that these artists and organizations have the support they need to both survive and develop thoughtful and imaginative plans to adapt their operations and work in the face of dramatically changed and changing circumstances.

The Adaptation grant application is a two-step process, starting with a simple question: If receiving Adaptation funds, how would you adapt? This question must be answered and emailed to by December 18, 2020 for applicants to be considered for the second step of the application process, which will last from December 21, 2020 to January 8, 2021 at 5:00 PM.

ACNV’s CARES Grants will provide funds to support and serve Napa County’s Latinx community. Eligible organizations must be Arts and Culture organizations led by and serving Napa County Latinx communities who have been disproportionately affected by COVID 19.

CARES Grant applications will be accepted from December 1, 2020 to January 8, 2021 at 5:00 P.M.

Technical assistance will be available on January 4 & 5, 2021 from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
