Manhattan Arts Grants

LMCC supports arts projects across Manhattan, from Inwood to the Battery, through its three regrants programs: The Fund for Creative Communities (The Fund), Manhattan Community Arts Fund (MCAF), and Creative Curricula. Grants are available to artists and to arts and community organizations to share the experience of the arts with audiences: on stages, in exhibition halls, classrooms, recreation rooms, public spaces, and unexpected locations across Manhattan.
