The State-Local Partner Mentorship (SLP-M) program is intended to support the establishment of a county-designated local arts agency in each of the four counties in which no such agency has currently been identified (Alpine, Glenn, Kings, San Joaquin). Grant funds will go to four existing State-Local Partners to foster the development of new SLPs in these counties.
Grantees will be required to accomplish the following within the grant activity period: Convene a standing committee of community members and stakeholders to support development of new SLP structure and strategic framework. Model race equity practices and principles in the development of new SLP mission, vision, programming, and services. Identify and retain a dedicated staff member to lead new SLP and provide mentorship to that individual. Identify and maintain an accessible public office space for the new SLP. Create a proposed operating budget for new SLP. By the end of the grant activity period, establish an active SLP in the identified county, either as a unit of County government or an independent 501(c)(3). Obtain resolution from the County Board of Supervisors naming the new SLP as the official partner of the CAC in that county. All activities to be funded by the CAC must occur within the one-year Grant Activity Period (see Timeline). Extensions to the grant activity period can be approved on a case-by-case basis by formal request to the Program Specialist, Director of Program Services, and Director of Operations. Rates of compensation for individual artists and/or arts workers to be supported by this grant must be appropriate to experience and comparable to fees for other local skilled workers. All CAC-funded programs, services, information, and facilities where funded activities take place must be accessible for individuals with disabilities, including but not limited to individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf- blind, have difficulty speaking, have a physical disability, visual disability, developmental disability, learning disability, mental illness or chronic illness.
