THE ARTS AND ACCESSIBILITY PROGRAM NO GRANT FUNDING FOR 2022
About the Arts and Accessibility Program
The goal of the Arts and Accessibility Program is to support universal access to and participation in the arts that is inclusive of the 23% of all Californians with disabilities. Since 2001, the Arts and Accessibility Program has been the signature grants program by the CAC for the disability community. Annually the National Arts and Disability Center was awarded a contract to administer the program. In our most recent award, we received $500,000. We offer technical assistance and funding for the career development of artists with disabilities and to increase the accessibility of cultural arts organizations. To date, we have awarded 327 grants to artists with disabilities and 235 arts organizations. In 2020 the Arts and Accessibility Program reached 95,815 adults, 1,800 children/youth, and 663 artists throughout California.
