1. Larger arts and cultural institutions that provide high quality programming on the basis of their collections and exhibitions, repertoires and performances, curatorial or programming expertise, and original contributions to their respective fields. Such organizations draw large numbers of patrons from throughout the metropolitan Detroit area, enjoy a national reputation for excellence and demonstrate a significant commitment to community outreach and education.

2. Arts and cultural organizations that provide both performance and audience opportunities of exceptional quality specifically for the region’s youth and particularly for youth from low-income households.

3. Other area arts and cultural organizations that significantly contribute to the well-being of residents of southeast Michigan. Support will generally be limited to occasional projects that significantly improve an organization’s level of artistic or cultural excellence or enhance its capacity to reach a more broad and diverse audience.
