When are your deadlines?
Our deadlines vary by program. You should check the Deadlines section under Funding Programs for the most up-to-date information.
Grant applications for each program also contain deadlines and project
I am running late with my application. Can I send it in
Most programs have a deadline date that is in-house – which
means your materials must be received by the Foundation
by 5pm on the deadline date. Sometimes, Foundation staff
will allow for a late application – or portion thereof – due
to extenuating circumstances. Please call the Foundation
staff member responsible for the program to which you are
applying for further information.
When will I find out whether or not I received a grant?
Again, that answer varies by program. For example, information
on State Fellowship grantees is released by the state
at a time which they determine – you should check
their websites for further information. MAAF programs
generally list a tentative notification date in each
program’s application materials.
Do you give money to individual artists?
Some of our programs, such as Creative Fellowships, do
provide money for individual artist residencies. The
money is paid to the organizations who then provide the
artist stipend. Other programs, such as the State Fellowships,
provide direct grant to artists. Please visit the Funding
Programs section of the website for further information
on Artists’ Programs.
