Funding and General Resources for Arts-based Businesses


Maine Arts Commission

The Maine Arts Commission offers grant funding to Maine organizations, individuals, schools, and municipalities. The grant cycle opens in January each year with the majority of deadlines before the end of April, with some offerings that have additional autumn deadlines. Funding support must be used for projects between July 1 of this year and June 30 of the following year. If a project has components that fall outside of the timeframe, those components cannot be funded, although components within the timeframe are eligible for funding. Applicants are welcome to apply to multiple grants, unless it is otherwise stated in the application. All applications must be submitted through the agency online Application Portal.

See the Grants Overview page for more information.
