GrantWatch ID#: 140167

Estimated Size of Grant:

Up to $3,000.

Term of Contract:

Projects must take place between June 1 and May 31.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Madison residents (as individuals or non-profit organizations) may apply.

While MAC has a strong interest in collaborating with other City agencies on arts and cultural programs, it does not make direct grants to those agencies.

MAC does not make grants directly to public or private elementary or secondary schools, but does make grants to individual artists or nonprofit groups working with schools. Post-secondary schools will be given consideration only for proposed projects whose main audience extends beyond enrolled students.

Grants MAY be used for artists’ fees, legally required royalties, production expenses, space rental, marketing costs, purchase of expendable materials, required insurance, etc. MAC Grants CANNOT be used to fund prizes or awards, grantee’s tuition, purposes other than outlined in the grant, permanent equipment, travel outside the City of Madison, refreshments or debts incurred for past activities.
