A primary aim of the program is to provide holistic support rather than restrict resources to the creative work that artists produce. A primary goal of the program is to bolster a creative workforce that composes a significant portion of Maryland’s creative and economic activity.
The purpose of the Grants for Artists Program is to contribute to the sustainability of artists’ livelihoods by providing funds that support working or living expenses.
Eligibility requirements:
  • Must be an artist providing evidence of regular creative practice.
  • Must produce or present projects or programs that are relevant to the community and accessible to the public.
  • Must be Maryland residents (owning or renting residential real property in Maryland at the time of application submission and throughout the funded project or program) and must be 18 years of age or older.
  • May not be enrolled in any matriculated high school, undergraduate or graduate degree program.
