Grants & Programs

Community Arts Access

The Community Arts Access (CAA) Program creates a partnership between the Illinois Arts Council Agency (IACA) and IACA-designated organizations by providing funds to expand local mechanisms that encourage and support developing arts programs throughout the organization’s service area. Based on the assessment and perception of local needs, the CAA Program’s regranting funds make it possible for designated CAA partners to develop grantsmaking processes that are responsive to their service area.

A list of current CAA Partners is available here.

The CAA Program is made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
