Community Arts Programming and Projects Fund

The Community Arts Programming and Projects (CAPP) fund is a program of the Macon Arts Alliance which funds up to $5,000 to any non-profit organization with an arts mission or an arts related project. Individuals or organizations without non-profit status may apply using a fiscal sponsor. The program is funded by Macon-Bibb County through Macon Arts Alliance, which is the designated arts agency for our local government.
The purpose of the grant funding is to bolster and increase arts programming across Macon-Bibb County and enhance the cultural vibrancy of our community by advancing the 2020 Cultural Master Plan for Macon. Priorities set by the plan include Tourism, Education, Creative Industries, Neighborhood Development, and Audience Cultivation. The full plan will be released this spring.
