The Alameda County Arts Commission will be awarding 2019 "Artsfund Grants" for nonprofit organizations of between $1,000 and $2,500. The deadline to apply is March 1.

The program supports all types of arts including dance, literature, media arts, music, theater, visual arts and multidisciplinary arts presented by nonprofit organizations. Last year, grants were presented to 48 groups.
