___________________________________________
In response to the marked lack of capital for entrepreneurial artists to afford starting or scaling up their creative businesses, we will award unrestricted grants to Bay Area BIPOC and BIPOC-led artist teams whose music-based project or business is contributing to the region’s arts and culture environment in positive ways. Awards will range from $5,000 to $50,000. Selected teams will also receive focused mentorship and community support.

To be eligible, applicants must have a solid team of two or more people, be BIPOC-led & based in the Bay Area, be preparing to launch or have an already established music project or business, and show that they are at a critical juncture – one were receiving funding could make a big difference in accelerating the growth of their business.
