Grants for Artists

The Grants for Artists (GFA) program supports the working and living expenses of Maryland artists.

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.

The program will be piloted in winter 2023, with support from the Arts Relief funding package. To learn more, register for one of the Grants for Artists information sessions listed on MSAC's Eventbrite page.
