Manhattan Community Arts Fund
Up to $5,000 for Manhattan-based artists & non-profit organizations
Not Without a Trace by 2009 MCAF recipient Tara Parsons
The Manhattan Community Arts Fund (MCAF) supports local arts organizations and artists that have little access to government funding sources. MCAF provides small grants for arts projects serving Manhattan communities. An MCAF grant is often one of the first grants an artist or group receives, and can help grant recipients to eventually leverage financial support from other sources. The program is made possible by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA).
The 2013 Manhattan Communities Arts Fund guidelines and online application form will be available on July 2, 2012.
How MCAF Works
Grants, ranging from $750 to $5,000, are awarded to individual artists or non-profit organizations. LMCC awards approximately $250,000 through MCAF each year to enable projects across Manhattan neighborhoods.
