Grants to Texas individuals and organizations in eligible regions for arts-related performances, projects, and events. Funding is intended to assist with expenses associated with an individual project, an entire season of projects, and individual projects sponsored by the City. Eligible projects are those that benefit residents of the City of McKinney.

The McKinney Arts Commission offers three types of financial assistance: Season Support Grants, Outreach Grants, and Project Grants. An organization may only apply for one of these grants per fiscal year. All proposals must be defined as one of the following:

  1. Season Support Grants provide financial assistance for the costs associated with a full season of projects, performances, or events within the grant fiscal year. Applicants who have previously applied for MAC grant assistance and are seeking funding for more than one project, performance, or event per year fall within this category. 
  2. Outreach Grants provide financial assistance for the costs associated with a single project, or if the applicant is applying for the first time. The intention of this grant program is to foster the development of start-up arts organizations or new programs. 
    • The predominant purpose of the expenditure must be to accomplish a public purpose.
  3. Project Grants provide financial assistance for the costs associated with a single, City-sponsored project. The intention of this grant program is to provide a funding source for one-time projects that the Arts Commission deems provide an artistic benefit to the City of McKinney community.
