Arts Relief General Operating Support

The Arts Relief general operating support (ARGOS) program was offered in FY 2023 (July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023) only, as the result of a one-time state supplemental budget package. ARGOS funds were disbursed to bolster the regular budgets of Maryland’s arts organizations and arts programs in recognition of the continuing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the arts sector.


ARGOS funds are available to programs already receiving general operating or arts programming support through certain MSAC grant programs in FY 2023.

ARGOS is part of a larger Arts Relief supplemental budget package being distributed as grants by MSAC in FY 2023.
