Grants of up to $1,500 to Michigan K-12 public and private schools for arts equipment, arts equipment repairs, and classroom and school art supplies. Teachers may apply from across the art disciplines, including creative writing, film and video, dance, visual arts, music, and theater.

Every effort will be made to provide funding to applicants from counties across the state. 

Criteria include:

  • Demonstrated need: The primary goal of this grant is to get art supplies into schools with greatest need. The application should indicate overall financial factors within the district (for example the number of free/reduced lunch) and additional budget factors that affect the ability to make purchases or needed equipment repairs. 
  • Impact: MYA will consider the estimated number of individuals benefiting and geographic location of the school – this is an explanation of the demographics and community the school operates in. Special consideration will be given to underrepresented areas and communities with low access to the arts. 
  • Implementation: Explain how the supplies purchased with these funds will help meet educational goals and allow students achieve learning outcomes

This grant may be used for the purchase or repair of any of the following items. Items not on the list will be considered but applicants are encouraged to check with MYA before completing the application:

  • Adaptive supplies for Special Needs
