Bronx Council on the Arts is thrilled to support the work of our

2017 Artist for Community, Arts Fund and Community Arts Grant recipients!

Each year BCA provides individual artists and organizations the opportunity to apply for funds to support grassroots and organizational community-centered arts and culture initiatives and projects. BCA Grants seek to foster the continuing development of local cultural resources, responsive to community needs.

These programs will take place between January and December of 2017. Most events are free or low cost and can be enjoyed by all generations! Please actively check the 2017 Funded Project Page and Bronx Arts Calendar for updates and details about how to participate in these projects!
