The MCC is introducing two new grant programs for organizations not currently funded as Partners or Colleagues. These programs are replacing the CIP Peers grant program, which is being discontinued. Applications will be due this spring. Please see the CIP guidelines (PDF) for more information.
CIP Gateway is a two-year operating support grant program. Gateway is designed to be the entry, or gateway, for organizations into the Cultural Investment Portfolio (CIP). The program has been designed to be aligned with the funding goals of the Portfolio: supporting public value, organizational capacity, and organizational sustainability.
CIP Projects grants are one-year grants for specific cultural public programming, and are not for general operating support. These grants will support cultural projects, and are an option for organizations and programs that are not eligible for CIP Gateway, or those simply looking for one-year project support. Eligibility has been extended to organizations working with a fiscal agent.
The CIP team is presenting six information sessions and a webinar to introduce Gateway and Projects from Feb 2 – March 7.
