Apply Now for Small Grants

Applications are now being accepted for the Public Art Small Grants Pilot Program. This new funding opportunity provides grants for cultural events or physical art installations in Alameda.

There are two grant sizes available:

  • Micro grants, ranging from $250 to $500
  • Small grants, ranging from $500 to $2,000 

In an effort to seed small start-up events and installations, applicants for micro grants are particularly encouraged to apply. All events and installations must be located in the City of Alameda, in an accessible location, and free to the public.

Applications will be accepted until Saturday, Feb. 29. Awards will be announced by Thursday, April 30, and funds will be eligible for use for one year, beginning Friday, May 1.

A program overview and question-and-answer session will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 7 p.m. in City Council Chambers (Alameda City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Ave., third floor).
