The City of South San Francisco is pleased to announce a Cultural Activities Grant Program to support community organizations and artists who wish to offer free or low-cost events and activities that will expose the community to cultural and recreational activities and programming.

The goal of this grant program is to foster cultural experiences for the community, infuse neighborhoods with the arts and increase exposure to cultural activities that will lead to a greater understanding and respect for diverse cultural heritages.

The City Council has allocated $10,000 for this grant program in the current Fiscal Year.  Typical grant awards will range from $500-$2000 and will require your organization entering into a funding agreement with the City.
