Unfettering Artists' Productivity and Impact


The City of San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs’ Creative Industries Incentive Fund (CIIF) provides project support to arts-rooted commercial  businesses involved in the production or distribution of the arts. Now with matching support from the Surdna Foundation, San Jose's CIIF program is part of the larger Creative Industries Incentive Network (CIIN) program. As a direct result, the maximum award  amount has been increased to support a broader and more ambitious  range of projects. Incentive awards can be provided for creative industries  of all types such as manufacturers, service providers, presenters, and  designers, among others. The CIIF seeks to support projects aimed at  building successful small businesses in San Jose that demonstrate community support,  marketability, growth and economic sustainability.
