Mayor Faulconer launches public-private partnership supporting arts

Continuing to take aggressive steps to deliver relief to San Diegans affected by COVID-19, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer was joined this week by local leaders to announce $1.25 million in public and private funding to help artists and nonprofits affected by COVID-19. The effort is launching with funds from the San Diego Regional Arts and Culture Coalition, The San Diego Foundation, the City of San Diego and private donors.
