Ticket to Ride

January 7, 2016

Funding available

screen-shot-2012-09-21-at-7-52-24-pmThe Maine Arts Commission Ticket to Ride program is once again accepting requests! The program provides funding to defray the cost of travel for Maine schools wishing to visit Maine arts based venues and events as part of a well rounded curriculum. Any PK-12 school in Maine is eligible to receive support of up to $300 each school year and any PK-12 school in Maine with a documented free and reduced lunch student population of 50 percent or greater is eligible to receive support of up to $500 each school year.

The Maine Arts Commission respectfully requests that Ticket to Ride funds not be used to replace existing transportation funds in school budgets but rather to supplement them when necessary. The trip’s goals should be aligned with the Maine Learning Results Visual or Performing Arts Standards.

If you are interested in applying please go to and read the details about the program and download an application.
