As part of Governor Larry Hogan’s Maryland Strong: Economic Recovery Initiative, an additional $3 million will be distributed by through the Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC) Emergency Grant Program.
Created in March in response to the COVID-19 State of Emergency, Emergency Grants provide funding to arts organizations and artists for losses sustained because of programming, operations, and events that have been modified or cancelled. This third round of funding is available to County Arts Agencies, Arts & Entertainment District Management Entities, Arts Organizations, and Independent Artists.
All applicants will be required to complete an application through Smart Simple to request funding.
Applications are now open and must be submitted by 5 p.m. on November 13, 2020 to be considered for funding.
