MAP Fund Grant Program

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Since 1989, MAP has invested in artistic production as the critical foundation of imagining, and co-creating a more equitable and vibrant society. In partnership with other philanthropies, MAP provides project funding, general operating support, and coaching services to artists. We’ve distributed over $34 million dollars to more than 1,400 projects at the forefront of re-imagining inherited models of artistic production, cultural paradigms, and related practices.

This year, MAP will make a significant $2.6M+ dollar investment in the performance sector. 85 grantees will receive a $25,000 grant for the creation and development of new, live performance projects and a $5,000 unrestricted general operating grant. The application is open now and will close at 7:00pm E.T. on May 27, 2022. For more information:

MAP aims to make the application process as supported as possible. See frequently asked questions and application tips, reach out to MAP staff via email or phone call, or request project description assistance:
