Fund a Grant Program

CAP five grant programs help fund local artists, arts organizations, and cultural organzations, making exemplary arts programming available to geographically, ethnically, and racially diverse segments of the County's population, and supporting the continued development of local cultural resources that are responsive to community's cultural needs.  Funds for CAP's grant programs come from the County, the State, and local businesses and individuals.
