Rental Opportunities

Rent Credit

The M-NCPPC provides financial assistance to Prince George’s County based non-profit organizations for rental expenses incurred when holding performances or art events at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Qualifying organizations renting space at The Clarice may apply to The M-NCPPC for rent credit to offset their expenses based upon the total estimated cost of the performance. Rent credits are typically based on a percentage of the total rental estimate and are generally not awarded for the full rental amount.
