Mini Grants for Artists
This is defined as a project or program, located in Chico, whose primary purpose is the performance, production or display of art works. Artists are eligible for up to $2,000. The contract for the project or program will be executed on a reimbursement basis.
The City Council has a policy which sets aside a percentage of the City’s General Fund for community arts organizations and projects located in the Chico Urban Area.
Typically, applications for funding are available at the end of January and reviewed by the Arts Commission in April. The Council considers the Commission’s recommendations and determines the final funding awards to the applicants at its June budget meeting for the July 1 – June 30 fiscal year.
