CA$H Grants
Share |

CA$H Grants (Creative Assistance for the Small and Hungry) provide invaluable financial support to individual theatre and dance artists and small professionally oriented companies. Individual artists can apply for grants of $2,000 and companies are able to apply for grants of $4,000.


All applicants applying to CA$H with a Dance project must submit their materials to Dancers’ Group (NOT Theatre Bay Area) using the dance application. There is no longer a common application form. Please review the dance application materials and guidelines carefully as changes have been made. Applicants applying to theatre must submit their application to Theatre Bay Area. For the dance application, visit 

Additionally, please note that effective with the Fall, 2016 round all CA$H applicants will need to be members of Theatre Bay Area (organizational applicants must be company members and individual artist applicants must be individual members)


Download the Spring 2016 CA$H Application here (reference only).

The deadline to apply for the upcoming round of CA$H theatre grants will be announced shortly.

Come to a workshop to hear more about how to apply for a CA$H grant and how to be a panelist! Check back for upcoming dates and locations.

Copies of the newest application will be available at the workshops and online.

If you have any questions about CA$H or the upcoming workshops, please email
