Capacity Building

Michigan Arts & Culture Council

Since 1966, the State of Michigan has recognized the value and importance of a vibrant arts and cultural sector.  The Michigan Arts and Culture Council (MACC) was established to maintain and nurture the state's cultural and artistic riches, and serves as the lead agency charged with developing arts and culture policy and grant-making.  The council is dedicated to ensuring that every citizen and community in Michigan enjoys the civic, economic and educational benefits of arts and culture.

The Network has served as a regional partner for MACC in Northwest Michigan since it formed in 2018, including its role as the regional regrant partner for the minigrant program through FY24 (9/30/24). It can also help organizations connect to MACC, its program directors, grant programs, and resources.
