Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) Picasso Project Grants

Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) works to improve the lives of our region’s children by developing initiatives and advocating for quality health care, child care, public education and family stability. An initiative of PCCY, Picasso Project has provided access to arts education for over 40,750 students at 100 Philadelphia public schools since its inception in 2002.

Picasso Project provides grants of up to $5000 to support innovative arts projects (visual art, music, dance, theater, and digital media) in Philadelphia public schools. The grants support a school’s need to boost arts offerings, integrate arts into other core subjects, and use arts to improve school climate. The grant is an opportunity for schools to partner with artists and community organizations. Additionally, grant recipients engage in advocacy activities to support equitable arts education funding for Philadelphia’s students.


  • Applications should be filled out by staff from Philadelphia public schools (District–managed and charter).
