The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities offers several funding programs for individuals and nonprofit organizations located in the District of Columbia. Individuals are not required to provide matching funds. Organizations are only required to provide matching funds as indicated.

Commission staff members conduct workshops at which participants learn about the Commission and the steps to submit a grant application. During these workshops, staff and applicants discuss each grant-making opportunity. Workshop dates, times and locations are subject to change.
