As the official cultural funding arm for both city and tourism dollars, we help our city live, engage, and create every day.

Our Creative Grants programs providing valuable support to neighborhood associations, emerging artists, community leaders, and major arts providers like our museums, symphony, opera, ballets, and theater companies.

GJAC strives to enrich and enliven the City With Soul by securing national grants for important city projects, our arts advocacy initiatives that can influence policy on cultural tourism, and our public art initiatives that make our city more dynamic and attractive to citizens, visitors and businesses.
