The Maine Arts Commission (MAC) and Maine Association of Nonprofits piloted a partnership offering eligible arts nonprofits a 50% discount on MANP membership in 2022 and 2023. Thanks to all the organizations that participated in this initial program.

In 2024, MANP and the Maine Arts Commission partnered to provide fully subsidized MANP and GrantStation memberships to 56 organizations that did not receive MAC's operations grant.
