The Santa Barbara County Office of Arts and Culture is proud to administer the City of Santa Barbara’s Community Arts, Organizational Development and Events and Festivals Grants as well as the County of Santa Barbara’s Community Arts Enrichment Grants.
To streamline and simplify the process for both applicants and panelists, all grant applications must now be submitted online through the new Community Grants Portal.
Click here to access the Community Grants Portal. Applicants are required to attend a grant workshop to apply and to obtain log-in credentials.
Click here for documentation on how to use the portal to submit applications, reports, and reimbursements.
Click here for word documents of the applications and evaluations.
Word documents outlining the application guidelines and questions are available by clicking on the links under 2017 Grant Opportunities or by using the link above. NOTE: You will still need to apply using the portal, these documents are not to be submitted as your grant application. Please contact Hannah Rubalcava if you have any questions.
