Financial Assistance for Awarded Projects
Professional artists who are Deaf or who are living with a disability or mental illness, and Deaf and disability arts groups and organizations may be eligible for funds to contribute to costs for specific services and supports required to complete a project funded through a Manitoba Arts Council (MAC) program.
Funds are available as a supplement to an awarded grant and provided to recipients who identify specific disability-related supports that are needed to carry out their proposed activities. The supplement may not cover all of these costs but may be a contribution towards these types of expenses. Accessibility-Financial Assistance must be linked directly to the project activities of the grant it is associated with; it does not fund daily living expenses.Learn more
