Please check out the quick turn around grant application! Our office, the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council, with funding from The McKnight Foundation provides $500 grants with a suggested 30% cash match to individuals in our area. These grants are quickly processed by our office and serve to fund spontaneous needs for artistic equipment and artistic training. Performing artists, writers, media artists, fine craft artists, and visual artists can apply if they are a permanent resident of our seven county service area of Northwest Minnesota.
Here is the Quick Turnaround Grant application in a Word file.
Each quarter a new pool of funding will become available starting in July, October, January, and April.
