  • Part 1 presents a brief overview of MACH history, funds available, where to access Plan Manitou, and what successful applications should include.
  • Part 2 begins at 16:00 and addresses what’s new this year with key guidance on how to create an account (hint: email account required and check your spam or junk folder).
  • You’ll also find some budget creation and entry basics, plus helpful tips for saving and completing your application.

If you’re planning a MACH-funded public art project for 2023, please contact CRANE for assistance no later than December 15.
