Our Stories, Our Lives

Arts & Humanities Touring Grants

Arts & Humanities Touring Grants are available to nonprofit organizations who may request up to 40 percent of a performer, presenter, or exhibitor's fee and travel expense. A grant request may not exceed $3,000 per application, and an organization may not submit more than four (4) grant applications or request more than $4,000 per year.

Touring Grants require the applicant to provide the remaining 60 percent of the performer's total fees and travel as a cost-share. If awarded a grant, you will receive payment after a final report is submitted to the MHC. Please plan to provide any required up-front payment to the performer, since the 40 percent grant award is reimbursed to the sponsoring organization after the program is completed and reporting requirements met.
