$22,700 Available to be Awarded through R2AC Arts Project Grants!

Arts organizations, non-profit organizations, schools (including community education offices), and units of government from Beltrami, Clearwater, Hubbard, Lake of the Woods, and Mahnomen counties are encouraged to apply for an Arts Project Grant.  The deadline for application is March 14, 2012.

Arts Project Grants require a 50% cash match of the total project cost. Organizations can apply for grants up to $1,500 per project.  With $22,700 available, that’s enough to fund at least fifteen separate arts projects!

Art projects including costs related to performances or exhibitions, engagement of guest artists or artists-in-residence, and classes, conferences, workshops, publications, films or other presentations that promote arts awareness are the types of projects funded through Arts Project Grants.

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.
