The Mississauga Arts Council is inviting its members to apply for the 2020 Micro Grants Program.
This year, after a large number of submissions to our Launch Grant funding category in 2019, we have decided to focus our Micro Grants program solely on the Launch Grant with applicable categories for every type of creative event.
Available to individual artists and unregistered groups/collectives, our Micro Grants program offers grants that encourage creative expression in Mississauga.
|Funding Category||Funding Available||Focus|
|Launch Grant 1 M||$3000||Music Launch project brings great music to more residents here and elsewhere.|
|Launch Grant 2 T||$8000||Theatre type Launch brings new, potentially annual event into being.|
|Launch Grant 3 C||$5000||Creative Launch of new event that excites imagination.|
|Launch Grant 4 U||$3500||Underserved community receives creative experiences of value.|
To learn more about each funding opportunity, as well as Eligibility and Scoring and Evaluation Criteria please see the Guidelines.
