Unfettering Artists' Productivity and Impact

Quick Grant Program                                                                        



The Quick Grant program was launched in 2009 by a consortium of California arts funders to strengthen the work of artists and arts administrators by improving access to information and professional development resources. Since then, the program has continued to strengthen the support system for California artists and arts administrators by providing professional development grants for individual artists and organizations.

The Quick Grant program awards reimbursement funds to San Francisco Bay Area nonprofit organizations and individual artists in the State of California to enroll in workshops, attend conferences, and to work with consultants and coaches to build administrative and business skills and strengthen the economic sustainability of an organization or arts practice.


Note regarding geographic eligibility--As of October 16, 2018 geographic eligibility for individual artists has changed. Please see current guidelines for eligibility.

Note regarding Los Angeles County--As of May 16, 2018, CCI will no longer support proposals to work one-on-one with consultants, and Los Angeles County applicants should only apply to attend group workshops or conferences. This guideline was devised in the spirit of conferring the benefits of peer learning and network building upon more artist grantees.
