MAC offers three types of financial assistance. An organization may only apply for one of these grants per fiscal year.

  • Season Support Grants
  • Outreach Grants
  • Project Grants


All proposals must be defined as one of the following:


1. Season Support Grants provide financial assistance for the costs associated with a full season of projects, performances, or events within the grant fiscal year. Applicants who have previously applied for MAC grant assistance and are seeking funding for more than one project, performance, or event per year fall within this category. 


Season Support grant funding assistance is limited to no more than 50% of the applicant’s project expenses, AND will not exceed $20,000. 


2. Outreach Grants provide financial assistance for the costs associated with a single project, or if the applicant is applying for the first time. The intention of this grant program is to foster the development of start- up arts organizations or new programs.
