The Copper Country Community Arts Council (CCCAC) is the region thirteen administrator for the Regional Re-granting program of the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA). The CCCAC facilitates funding opportunities for arts projects in the six counties of the Western Upper Peninsula; Houghton, Keweenaw, Baraga, Ontonagon, Gogebic and Iron.
Minigrants provide up to $4,000 for locally developed, high quality arts projects, which provide special opportunities to address local arts needs and increase public access to the arts. Minigrants support a broad range of artistic expression from all cultures through projects, which preserve, produce or present traditional and contemporary arts.
Minigrant dollars, matched 1:1 in cash/in-kind can be used for many types of arts activities such as exhibits, readings, performances, workshops, broadcasts, artist residencies, consultancies, commissions, restorations, festivals, pow wows, conferences, seminars, video and film productions and screenings, publications, and arts activities for students.
A new grant program for Professional and Organizational Development makes funding available for training courses, consultants, conference fees and related travel. Applicants may apply for up to $1500. A 25% cash/in-kind match is required.
Nonprofit organizations, schools, and municipalities from the six counties may apply. A panel comprised of knowledgeable individuals from each of the six counties evaluates all funding proposals. The review criterion includes artistic merit, sound planning and management, as well as community service. Geographic distribution, underserved populations, cultural diversity, and a variety of arts disciplines are considered when determining awards.
