Alameda County now accepting applicants for arts grants

Standard grant awards are usually $1,000 to $2,500 each

Visual and media arts, dance, literature, music and theater grants are now available through the Alameda County Arts Commission 2020 ARTSFUND Grant Program.

Grant awards are typically $1,000 to $2,500 each.

Last year, grants were awarded to 43 nonprofit groups throughout Alameda County; the Alameda County Arts Commission, which promotes public participation in the arts, said in a statement, "The arts are an essential component to Alameda County's leadership in promoting communities that are vibrant, prosperous, safe, healthy and inclusive in support of Alameda County's Vision 2026 goals."

Three free workshops to help organizations prepare their grant applications will be held by Arts Commission staff in several cities, including at the Livermore Community Center, 4444 East Ave., on Jan. 22. No reservations are required to attend any of the workshops, which will be held on the following dates:

* Jan. 15, 3 to 4:30p.m. in Fremont at the Fremont Main Library.

* Jan. 22, 3 to 4:30p.m. in Livermore at the Livermore Community Center.

* Jan. 29, 3 to 4:30p.m. in Oakland at the Alameda County Clerk-Recorder's Building.

The application deadline is March 5; the workshop information is also available in an online ARTSFUND video.
