LA County Awards $4 Million in Arts Grants
The Los Angeles County Arts Commission has announced $4,118,000 in grants to 175 nonprofit arts organizations through its Organizational Grant Program (OGP), which provides two-year grants to nonprofit arts organizations for their current organizational needs. Eighty-four of the 174 grantees are receiving funds to help support salaries or job creation, impacting Los Angeles County residents through increased job opportunities as well as through services. An estimated 10 million people will be served by the organizations that are receiving grants for 2012-14.
In addition to the 175 arts organizations whose grants were approved by the Board of Supervisions on July 3, 184 organizations are receiving the second installment of two-year grants that were awarded last year. These grantees bring the total number of arts organizations receiving Los Angeles County funds during the current fiscal year to 359.
