Grantee Crediting Requirements
How to acknowledge your grant from M-AAA
The Grantee’s project is underwritten by Mid-America Arts Alliance (M-AAA), which is supported by public, local, state, and federal agencies, as well as private contributors. M-AAA’s ability to raise funds is directly related to the credit acknowledgments provided. Grantees are required to give proper credit in all promotional materials.
M-AAA reserves the right to change the language of the required acknowledgement of support, as well as the right to disallow the use of the logo and acknowledgment of support. Failure to meet these credit requirements will jeopardize future M-AAA support for the Grantee. Copies of printed materials meeting these crediting requirements are required for the Final Report. Crediting language and logos should be removed upon completion of the period of support.
M-AAA and NEA logos are required on all print, digital, and broadcast materials for the funded project. Logos may be downloaded here.
Credit Language: Print or Digital Materials
The following basic credit line is required on the title page or another prominent location in programs and news releases; usage is also recommended on newspaper ads, websites, calendars, postcards, brochures, invitations, and other materials. Type size should be consistent with the majority of the type in the printed project materials and never smaller than 10-point.
“This project is generously funded by Mid-America Arts Alliance, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the state arts agencies of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.”
Credit Language: Radio, Television, and Digital Broadcasts
