Mission Statement The mission of the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) is to enrich Chicago’s artistic vitality and cultural vibrancy. To support this overarching mission, the Cultural Grants Program’s goal is simple: to serve as a catalyst to foster a robust, healthy arts community where artists, nonprofit arts and culture organizations and creative industries thrive. DCASE provides more than $1 million annually in direct funding for Chicago’s arts community through its Cultural Grants Program. Designed to reach artists and nonprofit arts organizations across every community in Chicago, grants provide operating funds, as well as support for professional development, the creation of new work, and instructional arts programs. Grants are awarded through a competitive panel review process.
