Lane Arts Council’s 2021-2022 Community Arts Program Grant, funded by the City of Eugene Cultural Services Division, provides operating support to Eugene’s small and mid-sized community arts organizations. Through investments in Eugene’s nonprofit arts organizations, the Community Arts Program Grant enriches the lives of residents and visitors by increasing opportunities for arts engagement, ensuring opportunities for artists, and cultivating a diversity of art forms.

The primary goal of the 2021-2022 Program Grant is to help arts organizations recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and fulfill their strategic goals moving forward.

Lane Arts Council recognizes that this is a unique time for our arts community as artists and arts organizations begin the long journey of recovering from and continuing through the COVID-19 pandemic and economic shutdown. This program provides operating support to 501(c)(3) organizations who have arts as the core of their mission. The most competitive applicants are arts organizations that provide public access to ongoing, sustained, artistic programming and outreach programs in Eugene.
