Good Idea Grant Recipients

 

The Good Idea Grant program fostered the growth of Maine’s artists by supporting the creation of new work or professional development. The Good Idea Grant was replaced by the Project Grant for Artists in the spring of 2014. The new grant offers a higher funding amount per award and has a single application deadline annually.
