Project Grants support short-term research and programming focused on folklife, or living cultural traditions. Successful Project Grants fund the project-based activities of professionals, community scholars, organizations, and artists as they identify, document, support, and present Maryland folklife. Project Grants do not support operational expenses or provide sustaining funding for long-term folklife programming.
Eligible Project Grant applicants are nonprofit organizations, as well as colleges, universities, and units of government. Nonprofit organizations must have been both incorporated as such in Maryland and received tax-exempt status from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service by July 1, 2017. Colleges, universities, and units of government are exempt from this requirement but must provide evidence of their legal status with their application materials. All applicants must have operated for one full fiscal year prior to the date of application.
