The Maine Arts Commission (MAC) is offering a special grant opportunity that awards up to $15,000 to support public art projects and programming for cultural organizations. This is a great opportunity for Maine’s creative community.
The Arts Jobs Grant supports arts organizations, programs, and professionals at the local level, advancing economic recovery within a cultural sector devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
MAC encourage applications from all 501c3 organizations including those that serve populations whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by ethnicity, economics, geography, or disability. Projects with small and medium-sized budgets and from rural to urban parts of the state are encouraged to apply.
There are two grant opportunities available—one for ARTISTS, and one for ORGANIZATIONS. Non-arts organizations are welcome to apply if the organization can demonstrate their mission is connected to the purpose of the grant and aligns with the established activities of the applicant.
