A project is an activity whose objective is the creation, preservation and presentation of an arts and cultural activity.

It is the goal of the Community Arts Access Program (CAAP) to give San Antonio citizens access to artistic and cultural activities in their own communities. The program makes funding available to local non-profit social service and community-based organizations so they can contract and partner with artists and arts organizations from a DCCD approved roster. They will then be able to bring performances and art activities to all City Council Districts for the benefit of area residents and to further the city’s effort to make their neighborhood a great place to live.For more information about CAAP visit the website www.saartistroster.com.
The Technical and Economic Development Assistance Program is designed to assist local not for profit arts and cultural organizations and professional artists to pay for specific expenses related to Organizational Stability, Development and Professional Growth.
