The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance Awards $400,000 to 80 organizations through the 2023-2024 Creative Sector Flex Fund

Philadelphia, PA—The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance (“Cultural Alliance”) is pleased to announce the awardees of the 2023-2024 Creative Sector Flex Fund (“CSFF”), a program of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (“PCA"). In this round of funding, 80 organizations received  $5,000 each for a total of $400,000 in grants to support small arts and culture work across Southeastern Pennsylvania (Bucks, Chester, Montgomery, Delaware, and Philadelphia counties). The CSFF is designed to address the changing needs of dynamic Pennsylvania organizations with average annual revenue between $10,000-$200,000. 

A new program that was introduced for the 2023-2024 funding cycle, the CSFF replaced the Program Stream and Entry to Program Stream with a new application and review criteria. The new criteria evaluated applications on community value, diversity, equity, and inclusion value, and stewardship value. The Greater Philadelphia region has a remarkable concentration of diverse and impactful organizations representing many facets of arts and culture. We express our gratitude to every applicant and we appreciate the important work that each organization does for the people of Greater Philadelphia. 

The Creative Sector Flex Fund grants will continue annually. The next round will open in spring/summer 2024. To receive a notification of the next available cycle of CSFF and related info sessions, please email
