Arts Council Silicon Valley has announced grants totaling $388,768, being given to 106 small and mid-sized performance and cultural groups for their 2004-05 fiscal years.

The funding represents a 25 percent increase over the Arts Council's previous year's grants, thanks substantially to a previously announced, three-year, $750,000 grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Groups receiving funding for either project support or general operating aid include the Firebird Youth Chinese Orchestra, Mariachi San Jose, the San Jose Jazz Society and Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana (MACLA).
