MCAC Grants

The Medina County Arts Council, as part of its effort to support The Arts in Medina County, provides grant funding to organizations promoting The Arts. To be eligible for funding, organizations must be nonprofit and have an arts focus. 2019 Grant applications were accepted through February 28, 2019. Applications for 2020 will be accepted beginning in January 2020.

Grants awarded are partly funded through contributions and funds from the Arts Council’s annual "Summer Soirée" fundraiser. For more information, please review the Grant Guidelines funding policies and eligibility requirements.
