June 30, 2023: Final Reports for 2022 grants are due.
June 30, 2024: Final reports for 2023 grants must be filed documenting your programming history, the precise expenditure and receipt of funds along with (if possible) project photos and samples of programs and promotional material with MAB acknowledgment.
Questions on Final Reports should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Failure to file final reports will eliminate applicants from consideration for future funding.
The amount of the grant is determined by the organizational budget:
If funded, an organization with a budget under $100,000* would receive a $3,000 grant. The grant award cannot be more than 50% of your operating budget therefore organizations with budgets under $6,000 are not eligible to apply.
If funded, organizations with a budget over $100,000* would receive a $6,000 grant.
*Based on “projected income for current fiscal year.”
Grant payment (75% of awarded amount) is made approximately six weeks after the receipt of 2023 signed contracts. Funding will not be available before July 1, 2023. Final grant payment (25% of awarded amount) is made following receipt of a signed Final Report due June 30, 2024. The MAB reserves the right to withhold final payment if the organization is no longer operating as of that date, or if the organization has moved out of the City of Milwaukee.
