Grants for Presenters
Due to a loss of funding, the PennPAT office and operations will close at the end of June 2013. No new applications are being accepted.
PennPAT staff will continue to process and monitor grants through July 2014 and can be reached at Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, 410-539-6656 x107 (after June 30, 2013) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation are exploring options for continuing to offer tour support for Pennsylvania-based performing arts groups and individual performers. Check back here for any updates, or if you would like to be added to our email list, contact email@example.com.
eGrant, a web-based application form, is now available for 2013 Fee-Support and New Directions Grant applications only. For Presenter Travel Grants, please see the link below.
Three Types of PennPAT Presenter Grants
- Fee-Support Grants focus primarily on traditional presentations of Pennsylvania-based touring performing artists and short-term residencies by those artists.
- New Directions Grants provide support for more complex projects that fall outside the scope of traditional presenting models. These longer-term projects should offer an opportunity for creative and audience development for the roster artist involved and should build relationships among artists, presenters and community members through collaborative activities while presenting at least one public performance and providing the roster artist with an opportunity for creative development.

- Presenter Travel Grants provide grants to U.S. presenters who are interested in booking a PennPAT roster artist, and would first like to see a live performance by that artist. Funds may be used to attend a full public performance by a PennPAT roster artist, at home or on tour. All funds allocated for Presenter Travel Grants have been awarded and this program is now closed to new applications.
