Autumn Program. Oct. 18-24, 2021

Grant Deadlines

Bay Area Performing Arts Grant Deadlines April – 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 months, from April-December of 2021.

If a grant deadline is marked ** (and has no URL link) this 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.
