The Mini-grant Program is a grants giving partnership financed by the State of Michigan through the Michigan Arts and Cultural Council (MACC) and administered by regional re-granting agencies. It is one of several grant programs MACC offers.
There are two components of the Mini-grant program: Arts Projects and Professional Development grants. These are special opportunities to address local arts and cultural needs as well as increasing public access to arts and culture. Organizations and individuals must be registered in the MACC SmartSimple Grant Portal.
Arts Projects Minigrants (2024 Project Support Guidelines) provide up to $4,000 for locally developed, high quality arts and cultural projects.
Professional Development Minigrants (2024 POD Guidelines) provide up to $1,500 to assist nonprofit organizations and arts professionals acquire services or skills to strengthen the administrative infrastructure of the organization.
