The Maine Theater Fund was established to strengthen and sustain theater performance throughout the state. Proposals for funding will be accepted from local, regional and statewide nonprofit theaters or theater groups in Maine whose primary purpose is the production of live theater. Funds will be awarded for programmatic, capacity-building, operating, and capital support. Please include a list of the productions from either the prior or current season and their respective audience numbers. Limited supporting information about the project is welcome.
Proposals for up to $5,000 in funding will be accepted from local, regional and statewide nonprofit theaters in Maine. Applicants must be nonprofit, 501(c)(3) federal tax-exempt organizations, or have a fiscal sponsor that is a 501(c)(3) organization, public school, public agency, or Indian tribal government.
The application deadline is September 15, annually.
