United Arts provides support for more than 50 local arts, sciences and history organizations through four fundamental grant programs.
As partners in support of cultural tourism United Arts works with Orange County's Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs to award Cultural Tourism and Cultural Facilities funding. Both programs are supported by tourist development tax (TDT) revenues. Cultural Tourism Funding supports projects that attract tourists, stimulate local economies and generate new jobs. Last year, total grants of $1.97 million were awarded. Cultural Facilities Funding supports the acquisition, renovation, construction or equipping of museums and performance venues in Orange County. This past cycle, $893,547 was awarded.
Since 2013, United Arts has acted as the arts and cultural sector fiscal agent for The Dr. P. Phillips Foundation.
