Arts Equity Grants

The Arts Equity Grant program (formerly the Expanding Cultural Access Grant program) provides financial support to organizations in Multnomah County and the City of Portland conducting arts and culture projects and programming for communities of color, immigrants, refugees, underserved neighborhoods, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ communities, and other under-represented communities. The goal of this grant program is to further RACC’s commitment to ensuring that everyone in our region has equal access to arts and the fundamental right to express their culture through the arts.
