These grants are two-year awards that help provide some measure of funding stability for arts organizations so that their energy can be better focused on increasing the quality and availability of the arts to their communities. Organizations can qualify to apply for up to $6,000 in funds based on their annual expenses.
If your arts organization misses this application deadline, you will need to wait two years before you have the opportunity to apply again. Applications are available at the Region 2 Arts Council Office, 426 Bemidji Avenue, Bemidji, MN 56601 and are also available for download here.
Projects funded through R2AC’s grants programs should have primary impact on and accessibility to residents of Beltrami, Clearwater, Hubbard, Lake of the Woods, and Mahnomen Counties.
We would be happy to discuss your ideas with you or assist you in completing the application form. Call 751-5447, toll free at 1-800-275-5447, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
This grant is funded, in whole or in part, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund passed by Minnesota voters on November 4, 2008.
