ay Area Performing Arts Grant Deadlines January – December 2021

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 coming 12 months from January 1, 2021.

** (and with no URL link) 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.

This list will evolve over the coming months as foundations announce new deadlines.
