AZ Commission on the Arts
The Arizona Commission on the Arts (ACA) is a 50-year-old agency of the State of Arizona (A.R.S. 41-981) authorized to deliver grants, programs and services that contribute to the availability of arts programming and services for the benefits of Arizona citizens. It is governed by a 15-member Commission appointed by the Governor, and is funded by various state-funding streams and matching grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Visit the ACA website for information on state-sponsored grant programs and activities, and an archive of important information about the arts industry.
