The city of Stockton has extended a deadline to mid-January for an application period in which artists and nonprofit arts organizations can seek funding via grants.

Among federal pandemic relief funding Stockton received, the city allocated $180,000 for the art grants, which will be up to $3,000 for an individual artist and up to $20,000 for a nonprofit group.

Applicants must make the majority of their income from the arts sector, such as literary, visual and performing artists, musicians, or specialized artist workers who handle lighting, sound design or other parts of a production.

The Stockton Arts Commission will convene panels to review the applications after the deadline of 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 15.

The full news release with more details about eligibility can be found online, as well as the portal to submit applications.
