Latino artists and organizations are at the forefront of social change and have made significant contributions to social justice efforts. The NALAC Fund for the Arts supports this work and serves as a catalyst for innovation in the arts field, providing Latino cultural producers with critical funding to invest in their creative capacity and ability to make lasting contributions to their communities and society.


The NALAC Pod Grant is open to Latinx artists or cultural workers. This grant will support projects led by NALAC members that builds upon NALAC’s mission of promotion, advancement, development, and cultivation of the Latinx arts field. This is an opportunity for arts administrators, cultural workers and artists to organize networks, mobilize advocacy, amplify visibility, refine leadership skills, or sharpen aesthetic and critical thinking in their local arts and culture communities.
