The objective of the M-AAA American Rescue Plan (ARP) Grant is to invest in and provide financial support to eligible organizations with operating budgets of $500,000 or less. Eligible organizations include nonprofit arts organizations, arts service organizations, units of state or local government, federally recognized tribal communities or tribes, and a wide range of other organizations that primarily produce, present, promote, or serve the arts. This grant will help those entities and their employees endure the economic hardships caused by COVID-19. 

Unlike other M-AAA grant programs that offer project-based support, the M-AAA ARP Grant intends to support day-to-day business expenses/operating costs, and not specific programmatic activities. For more information, visit www.maaa.org.
