Thank you for your interest in RACC’s grant programs. The fall grant cycle has not been set yet as we are undergoing some significant transitions in the wake of the City of Portland’s changes to arts funding. In the meantime, please sign up for our e-newsletter or follow our social media for announcements as information becomes available. 

One of the ways the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) supports the region’s vital arts and culture community is through grant programs. Funding is awarded through competitive processes that includes dozens of community members serving on peer review panels and evaluating each request. Artists and organizations who receive public funding through RACC are required to report on the outcomes of their grant-funded work.

RACC accepts grant applications from individual artists, arts organizations, arts businesses, and other non-profit organizations headquartered in our service area and according the specific eligibility criteria.
