Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation (MAAF)
Grants of up to $10,000 to USA nonprofits and government agencies in multiple states to support the presentation of community arts events. Funding is intended to promote the collaboration of organizations that engage eligible artists for touring projects in the region. Presenters must be located in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia, or West Virginia.
ArtsCONNECT supports touring projects developed by presenter consortia based in the region that includes public performances and community engagement activities. ArtsCONNECT facilitates an open process of sharing touring project ideas amongst presenters and encourages active participation for presenters of all sizes.
Projects that demonstrate clear mission impact, strong artistry, well-rounded community and artist engagements, as well as thoughtful outreach and partnership efforts that cultivate underserved audiences – are encouraged to apply.

The Projects in Development listing is a user-generated, one-stop information hub that includes all of the consortia projects currently in development for ArtsCONNECT. The tool intends to help ease ArtsCONNECT’s partner-seeking process and connect presenters across the mid-Atlantic region with each other. Presenters can seek potential presenting partners by submitting artist and project information to the listing, and learn about other developing consortia to possibly join.

Each presenter may request up to 50% of the negotiated artist fee for the engagement, but not to exceed $10,000.
Consortium projects will be reviewed in three tiers:
- Tier 1: consortia with a majority of presenters proposing negotiated artist fees of $5,000 or below
- Tier 2: consortia with a majority of presenters proposing negotiated artist fees between $5,001 and $15,000
- Tier 3: consortia with a majority of presenters proposing negotiated artist fees of $15,001 or above
In the case where a consortium consists of an equal amount of presenters falling under different tiers, the consortium will be placed in the tier of the highest fee range in those options. MAAF will make the final decision for the placement of a project’s funding tier.
All eligible activities must take place between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021
