Arts Equity Grants

The Arts Equity Grant program provides financial support to organizations in Multnomah County and the City of Portland conducting arts and culture projects and programming for  geographically underserved neighborhoods; communities of color, immigrants, and refugees; persons with disabilities; LGBTQ  communities; homeless and houseless communities; and other under-represented populations. The goal of this grant program is to further RACC’s commitment to ensuring that everyone in our region has equal access to arts and the fundamental right to express their culture through the arts.
