Professional Development Grants


The Professional Development Grant program is retired.

You can apply to support your work through the RACC Arts3C Grant program.

Current grantees can continue to administer their grants through the RACC Opportunity Portal. All applicants are welcome to contact RACC Grants Team at with questions or if you need assistance.


RACC’s Professional Development Grant program supported artists, arts professionals, and arts organizations in Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington Counties with grants of up to $2,000 to support distinct opportunities that will advance their creative practice or business skill development.

The Professional Development Grant Program was focused on supporting opportunities that are distinct from the applicant’s previous experiences, timely, meaning the applicant is in a prime time in their career to benefit from the opportunity, and opportunities which would result in long term professional growth.
