Grant Deadlines

Bay Area Performing Arts Grant Deadlines
January – July 2024

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 first half of 2024. 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, so we cautiously expect it to be somewhat similar this year.
