Thank you for another great installment of the Mock Grant Panel. This year’s applications have closed but will reopen in late autumn of 2022. Follow our newsletter to receive news about upcoming deadlines and events.

The Mock Grant Panel offers an opportunity to practice writing a grant application for your arts-based project, and to get formal feedback from a review committee. Artists of all disciplines, collectives, and emerging arts organizations without nonprofit status are invited to submit applications with budgets up to $50,000. Read up on guidelines and frequently asked questions in the “Important Resources” section.

In 2022, MAPS divided Mock Grant Panel submissions into two pools: one for applicants who have more experience or success with past applications, and one for those who may be first-time applicants, or who have not had successful past applications. Our hope is that this will provide applicants with a more equitable opportunity to receive helpful feedback no matter where they are in their creative careers.
