MRAC’s Grant Interface

MRAC’s online grant interface is the access point for grant applications, grant agreements, and final report forms. 

There are two grant interface links.

Use the “Grant Interface for Organizations” for Flexible Support, Arts Impact for Groups, Equity Response, Arts Project Support, Arts Learning, Capital, Management Consulting Fund, Management Training Fund, and  Organizational Development grants.

Grant Interface for Organizations

Groups should only use one organizational grant record, while there can be multiple users per organization. All communication about this grant will be sent to the applicant’s email address in the online application.

Applicant organizations should create a single user account. Please do not create a new account for each application. If you or your organization has applied for funding at MRAC in the past you already have an account. Enter your email address on the Logon Page and click “Forgot your Password,” then follow the instructions. If no account is found and you know you or your organization has applied in the past, contact MRAC to get log in information.

Use the “Grant Interface for Individuals” for Arts Impact for Individuals and Next Step Fund.

Grant Interface for Individuals

Individuals should only use one individual grant record to apply for either Next Step Fund or Arts Impact Grant – Individuals.
