Five (5) organizations will be awarded $500-$1000 toward subsidizing the rental cost of the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center (PAC) for performances from July 2017 to June 2018. This grant was created to increase the accessibility of the PAC by members of the community and to encourage the development of local artistic groups by providing a high-quality venue at a subsidized cost. MPGA online applications will be accepted until March 1st, 2017.
