BALTIMORE, MD (October 1, 2020) - The Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC) is pleased to introduce the Network Technical Assistance grant, which will support organizational development for MSAC’s three network-based programs: Arts & Entertainment Districts (A&E), County Arts Development (CAD), and the Folklife Network.

The A&E, CAD, and Folklife Network programs raise the profile of Maryland arts through 29 A&E Districts, 24 county arts councils, and 8 regional folklife centers. Network Technical Assistance grants will provide funds to support professional consulting services, board and staff development fees, and other activities allowing these organizations to better serve their communities.

Network Technical Assistance grants are between $500 and $2,000 and will be offered on a rolling basis, pending available funding. Along with the Creativity and Professional Development Opportunity grants, Network Technical Assistance grants are the latest in a series of new MSAC programs offering direct support to organizations and artists through small, flexibly-scheduled funding opportunities.
