Creative Economic Development Fund (CEDF) grants for creative social enterprises in Los Angeles
Application Deadline: Monday, April 3, 2017 at 12PM
With support from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, the Roy & Patricia Disney Family Foundation, and the Surdna Foundation, the Center for Cultural Innovation announces a third round of the Creative Economic Development Fund (CEDF), an investment program that provides funding for projects that will help launch startup ventures or expand micro-sized creative enterprises with five or fewer employees.
This year $100,000 in grants are available to entities--independent businesses, self-employed artists or cultural producers, artist collectives, or nonprofits with significant earned income activities--that use commercial strategies in pursuit of an arts or culture mission that have a social impact.
The objective of this program is to support creative enterprises that will have a positive economic development impact in the City of Los Angeles, with priority consideration for enterprises and their projects that will benefit economically disadvantaged communities or geographically underdeveloped neighborhoods.
