2022 Summer Series June 11 - July 2

Grant Deadlines

Bay Area Performing Arts Grant Deadlines
April – August 2022

SFIAF works with multiple artists to raise funds for individual projects that take place as part of the Festival. This page contains a sample list of funding deadlines for the six months starting April 2022. If there is one we are missing that you would like us to add, please send an email to [email protected]

** Denotes that the next deadline is still to be announced, but this was the deadline for the last cycle (or last pre-COVID cycle), so we cautiously expect it to be somewhat similar this year.
