MINC Funding Recipient 2016 – The William Grant Still Arts Center


Founded in 1977, William Grant Still Arts Center is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs offering summer camp, creative workshops, music and art classes for adults and youth, an exhibition space, concerts, and places for community meetings and the neighborhood to come together.

MINC generously supported the William Grant Still Arts Center Art and Jazz Summer Camp earlier this year, 2016.


All of the William Grant Still Arts Center’s programs are free, or are as low-cost as is possible, in order to be accessible to all in our community. For more information, visit https://wgsac.wordpress.com/

Citizen Participation Plan

“The Housing + Community Investment Department is soliciting public comment on the revised Citizen Participation Plan (CP Plan). As a requirement of the federal Housing and Urban Development Department, the CP Plan sets forth the City’s roadmap for encouraging and ensuring public participation in the Consolidated Planning process, including but not limited to: assessing needs, setting priorities and devising strategies for investment. The City’s Consolidated Plan, through its four entitlement grants (Community Development Block Grant, HOME, Emergency Solutions Grant and the Housing Opportunities for Person with AIDS) provides for public services, housing and related programs, neighborhood improvements, economic development, homelessness, and assistance to people living with AIDS. Activities funded by Community Development Block Grant funds are to primarily benefit low and moderate income persons, eliminate slum and blight, or meet an urgent need.

We invite you to review the CP Plan and provide your input and feedback.

The CP Plan may be accessed through the HCIDLA main website, under the “What’s New” banner:


Please send your comments electronically to: hcidla.planning

The official, public comment period will continue through February 28, 2015.”
