Lake County Arts Council (LCAC) is proud to be issuing mini-grants to the affected artists of the Sulphur Fire.  The purpose of LCAC is to encourage and develop the arts and cultural activities in Lake County by coordinating, developing, sponsoring and providing assistance in all artistic and cultural endeavors.  With this grant LCAC will be doing just that.

The California Arts Council (CAC) utilized special National Endowment of the Arts funding to support re-granting projects that provide support for arts organizations who suffered loss and/or business interruption as a result of the fires and to support for artists who suffered major losses as a result of the fires.  The LCAC will use this funding to re-grant mini grants to artists, companies, and organizations who had art related losses from the Sulphur fire. The Sulphur fire took place in the Clearlake Oaks/Clearlake Park area(s) in October, 2017. The application for mini grants will be made available online Jan 1st-31st and due no later than January 31,, 2019. Expected release of funds will be in late February-early March 2019 as funds become available from the CAC.  Visit www.LakeArts.org for details on the granting process and the online application.

LCAC is proud to support arts in culture in Lake County and will continue to support those in need during this period of rebuilding and growth.  LCAC will work hard to accommodate as many applicants as possible as funds permit.
