GFAC helps artists and non-profit organizations secure funds for arts projects. GFAC meets the funding challenge through regional regranting programs, fundraising workshops and consultancies. From its collection of national, regional, state and local contacts, GFAC has information about arts funding from a wide range of sources.

GFAC is the Regional Regranting Agency representing Genesee and Lapeer Counties for the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. This program makes funding available to other non-profit agencies for arts and cultural projects.

Many local non-profit agencies are able to offer culturally diverse projects through funding provided by the MCACA regranting program.

Friendly Reminder: Aug. 3rd deadline, upcoming Grant Workshops (free).

Funding for arts/cultural projects occurring between Oct. 1, 2018 and Sept. 30, 2019.
