The Metropolitan Regional Arts Council (MRAC) conducts all granting processes online through our Grant Interface. The Grant Interface is available on each grant program page. Click the appropriate grant from the list on the right to access that grant's page.

From the Grant Interface you can:

  • Apply for a grant
  • Complete grant agreements
  • Submit final reports


You can find a list of all MRAC grant programs with links on our Grants-at-a-Glance page. To apply to any program, go to the appropriate grant program page and download and read the grant guidelines. Click the large blue “Apply Here” button to access the Grant Interface and begin the online application process.

  • The online grant application will be active starting six weeks before each grant deadline. We recommend all applicants start the process as soon as possible after the application for that program is activated. Applications can be saved in draft form, edited, and submitted when ready.

  • Applicant organizations should create a single user account.* Please do not create a new account for each application.

The two videos below give a brief overview of the registration process and application workflow. The grant guidelines also provide written step-by-step instructions.


To complete grant agreements and final reports, simply log on to the Grant Interface via the “Apply Here” button on the respective grant program page. From the dashboard you will see your submitted grants and any assigned grant agreements or final reports. Click the blue edit link to complete and submit the assigned form.

If your organization needs to complete a final report for a grant awarded before July 2013, please access your final report form from the final reports page.


Please call MRAC Staff if you have any questions about this online application process. We place great value on the accessibility of our grantmaking process. We do not want the Grant Interface to be a barrier for anyone to applying.

* Individual artists applying to our Next Step Fund will register as a unique user through the “Apply Here” link on the Next Step Fund page. This user registration is distinct from any organizational affiliation and the Grant Interface for that program is unique from our other grant programs.
