Mississippi Arts Commission Announces Minigrant Application Deadline

JACKSON, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from the Mississippi Arts Commission.

The Mississippi Arts Commission (MAC) is pleased to announce that starting on May 1, 2015, applications will be accepted for the agency's Minigrant program. The upcoming application deadline is Monday, June 1, 2015. MAC offers two Minigrant deadlines each year - June 1 and November 1 (this year the second deadline takes place on Monday, November 2, 2015) to assist with smaller arts projects around the state.

Minigrants for organizations are designed to meet a wide variety of needs in Mississippi communities, schools, and arts organizations and stimulate arts projects in rural and underserved communities. Non-profit organizations or local government entities may apply for up to $1,000 to either support a presentation by members of the MAC's Artist Roster, to hire a consultant, or to support professional development efforts for an arts organization. An organization may receive one Minigrant per fiscal year.

Professional-level artists may apply through the Artist Minigrant program for up to $500 to support promotion and marketing efforts, to attend a professional development workshop, or to purchase art supplies.

Complete grant guidelines and application forms are available on MAC's website at www.arts.ms.gov or call 601-359-6030 for more details. First time applicants are strongly encouraged to call and speak with a MAC staff member about their project before submitting an application.

The Mississippi Arts Commission is a state agency, funded by the Mississippi Legislature, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Mississippi Endowment for the Arts at the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson, and other private sources. MAC is the official grants-making and service agency for the arts in Mississippi. The agency serves as an active supporter and promoter of arts in community life and in arts education.
