Now Accepting Applications for the City's Annual Grant Program

Community Promotions Grant Program
Funding Year 2019-2020

The City of Emeryville is pleased to announce the Annual Grant Program awards for Funding Year 2019-2020. Each year the awards are made to eligible arts and culture organizations and individuals to fund diverse programming that benefits the greater Emeryville community. All applications are reviewed by a subcommittee comprised of 2 members from the Public Art Committee, 2 members from the Parks and Recreation Committee and one Community Services Staff member. Recommendations for the grants are then submitted to the Emeryville City Council for final approval.

These grants support the creative life of Emeryville. The Program expands public access to visual and supportive arts in our community by supporting the work of the individual artist or organizations.

The City welcomes applications from a variety of nonprofit organizations or individuals or organizations that obtain a fiscal agent sponsor. Previous grants have been awarded to community service providers and groups that are associated with arts, youth, seniors, and special event programs.

The City of Emeryville encourages these organizations or individuals to apply for grants up to $10,000 before February 28, 2019.

Visit the Community Grants webpage for more information and to apply, or call Pedro Jimenez, Community Service Director, at 510-450-7813.
