One thought on “The City of Santa Ana has thousands of dollars available to grant to local artists”
  1. Thousands of dollars for local artists? But not money to clean the homeless mess in Civic center? or improve parks, or combat crime? And how does the city monitor how this monies are distributed, to whom, and for what purpose? Sad…….
