As many of you know, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) plays a vital role providing grants to Manhattan-based artists and arts groups/organizations who would not otherwise have access to state and local funding.
The 2013 LMCC grant schedule is now set, and full information follows. These grants are available to Manhattan-based artists of all disciplines, and application procedures and information sessions are detailed in the below.
Deadline for grant applications for all 2013 projects is September 13, information sessions begin July 10.
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) is pleased to announce its 2013 grant cycle. Each year, LMCC offers three grant programs to support arts and arts education programming in Manhattan: The Fund for Creative Communities (The Fund), Manhattan Community Arts Fund (MCAF) and Creative Curricula (CC). Together, the programs provide over $500,000 annually to support over 200 projects and enliven communities from Inwood to the Battery. These grants support both individual artists and nonprofit organizations to develop and lead arts projects in their Manhattan communities.
Complete program information and application forms are available on LMCC’s website, www.LMCC.net/grants.
