Funding Available for Arts & Culture Projects

Oakland County Arts, Culture & Film is accepting grant applications for the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) Minigrant Program. The application deadline is October 3 for arts and culture projects that take place from January 1 through September 30, 2012.

Non-profit organizations, schools and local government units located in Oakland County are eligible to apply for funding. The MCACA Minigrant Program provides up to $4,000 in financial assistance, on a matching basis, for local, high quality arts and cultural projects that recognize a community need and require additional, limited funding to meet that need. Grant application and guidelines are available on-line at www.artsoakland.com.

Applicants residing in counties other than Oakland should contact the office for information on the location of their MCACA regranting agency. New requirement this year– applicants musts participate in the Michigan Cultural Data Project and have their most recently completed fiscal year’s data entered at the time of the Minigrant application.

For further information, contact Kristie Everett Zamora, Coordinator of Arts & Culture at (248) 858-0415.
