LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) today announced its grant program workshop schedule in anticipation of projected funding increases for Fiscal Year 2014 program.
“We are very excited about the support we have received from Governor Rick Snyder, his administration and the legislature,” said MCACA Executive Director John Bracey. “The confidence they have shown in our agency and the additional dollars represented in the appropriations bill will allow us to expand funding to our current programs as well as create a new Artist in Residence program for K-12 schools.”
MCACA will be conducting free informational workshops on grant guidelines and the application process for potential applicants throughout the state and online throughout the rest of the summer. Workshop attendance is not required for grant applicants; however, updated guidelines and application process changes will be reviewed at each meeting, so attendance is encouraged. Pre-registration or RSVPs are not required.
