MTMA is pleased to provide grants that support the music curriculum and music enrichment programs in all our schools.
Grants for teacher-initiated projects:
Our first priority is to support projects, programs, and trips that are initiated by teachers. Grants for these projects are approved by the MTMA Board on a rolling basis as needs arise throughout the year.
Grants for PTO-initiated projects:
In recent years there has been an increase in PTO-initiated programs to compensate for music cuts at the elementary level. While MTMA would prefer to see our District making a more significant investment in the arts curriculum at the elementary level, we do offer support to PTO-initiated projects. In an effort to make support equitable across the District, leaders of each project are asked to complete a grant application which will be reviewed and voted upon at an MTMA General Meeting. Applications must be submitted to the MTMA Board three weeks prior to the General Meeting.
