The Department of Cultural Affairs generates and supports high-
quality arts and cultural experiences for Los Angeles’ 4 million
residents and 25 million annual visitors. DCA advances the social
and economic impact of the arts and assures access to arts and
cultural experiences through grant making, marketing, public art,
community arts programming, arts education, and partnerships
with artists and arts and cultural organizations in neighborhoods
throughout the City of Los Angeles.

DCA’s operating budget and managed portfolio totaled $36.7
million in fiscal year 2009/10. It consisted of: $9.6 million in
Transient Occupancy Tax funds; $12.2 million in funds from
the Public Works Improvements Arts Program; $8.6 million
from the Private Arts Development Fee Program; $4.9 million
in City related and indirect cost allocations; and $1.4 million
in private and public funds raised during the year. DCA grants
approximately $3 million annually to over 280 artists and
nonprofit arts organizations through its long-established
Grants Administration Division. DCA provides arts and cultural
programming in its numerous neighborhood arts and cultural

and education programs.

    Accounting, and includes a full time staff of eight. The Division is
    responsible for processing approximately 500 contracts annually,
    positioning DCA as the second ranking City agency, below Public Works,
    in terms of the number of City contracts awarded and administered.


    All summary figures reported for DCA’s Public Art and Community
    Art Divisions are for FY09/10. Figures for the Grants Administration
    Division are for FY08/09, the most recent year for which complete
    figures were available at the time of the printing of this publication.
    (Grantee final reports, from which attendance figures are compiled,
    are submitted to DCA staff three months after the close of the fiscal
    year; therefore, FY09/10 statistics were not available in time for the
    printing of this publication.)

    DCA’s financial information is compiled from the City’s Adopted Budget
    reports. DCA staff information is compiled from Department statistics.
    Public Art figures for PWIAP and ADF Developer-Led project funding,
    as well as ADF fees paid are compiled from Building and Safety Permit
    Reports. PWIAP and ADF figures for jobs created and data for new
    projects are compiled from DCA statistics. Grants Administration
    Division figures for total amounts awarded and number of projects
    funded are from DCA statistics based on grant award contracts, while
    audience totals and figures for jobs created are reported by grantees
    in their final reporting documents. Community Arts Division figures for
    facility attendance, employment statistics, and program information
    are reported by DCA staff and administrative staff from Public/Private
    Partnership Arts Facilities.
