New MCACA Community Partner Grants
MCACA is so happy to announce a new grant opportunity in partnership with Arts Midwest. The Community Partners Grant program is a competitive grant program that exists to strengthen communities by encouraging them to work collaboratively with artists and culture bearers to explore local issues, where collaborative art-making is integral to daily lives and is valued as a tool for community development. Grants from $10,000 to $20,000 are available for qualifying applications. Eligible organizations include: 501c3 non-profit organization, college/university, unit of government or tribal entity. The eligible 501c3 non profit organization, college/university or unit of government represents the project partnership — coordinating planning efforts, submitting the grant application, acting as fiduciary agent and assuming full project responsibility. The deadline to apply for the Community Partners Grant is November 1, 2021, for projects taking place between January 1, – June 15, 2022. Find the complete grant guidelines on our website, here. If you’re interested in learning more about the program, MCACA Director, Alison Watson, will be hosting a series of workshops to walk individuals through the new program and answer questions. Informal workshops will be held for an hour on these dates:
