The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA) introduced a new grant program, the Creative Sector Flex Fund (CSFF), in 2023-2024, and is offering the program again for the 2024-2025 grant cycle. The CSFF is designed to address the changing needs of dynamic PA arts organizations with an average annual revenue between $10,000 and $200,000. This grant program incorporates the current needs of the field by offering grantees the flexibility to use $5,000 grants in ways that ensure the most significant impact on their organizations and communities.

Eligible uses of funds are flexible, including the support of applicants’ administrative, programmatic, and project-related expenses. As a regional partner, the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance administers this grant for Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties. Applicants—including current grantees—must submit a new application every year.

Funding amount: $5,000 per applicant. The number of grants available annually varies based on the availability of funds from PCA, which is supported by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania budget.

Please note: The PCA has retired Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts’s (PPA) Entry to Program Stream and Program Stream grant programs. The decision to retire these programs resulted from the PCA’s consideration of conversations, feedback, observations, insights, research, and data review with state and industry leaders, panelists, grantees, and community members. The goal of this retirement is to enable the PCA to provide a funding avenue that better aligns with industry trends and the goals of PCA’s strategic plan.
