Napa County Arts Grants - Don't Miss Your Chance!

Napa County | Apply by March 22nd, 2018


On April 10, 2012. the Napa County Board of Supervisors signed a resolution creating an Arts and Culture Advisory Committee for the primary purpose of conducting a capacity building grant program and making recommendations to County staff regarding grant awards to be made to non-profit art and cultural organizations in Napa County. Funding for grants comes from the Special Projects Fund, which the Board of Supervisors established after the Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) increased from 10.5% to 12% on January 1, 2005.

Each year the Committee conducts a Request for Proposals application process and makes recommendations on the Arts and Culture Grant Capacity Building Grant Program, which is intended to provide capacity-building funds for Napa County nonprofit arts and cultural organizations in support of the Napa County Art and Cultural Plan (PDF). The Committee also makes recommendations on the Visitor Management Grants Program, which is intended to fund activities and projects of Arts and Culture organizations that further the goals established in the Napa Valley Tourism Improvement District Management Plan. Both programs will run concurrently.
