State Arts Board Partners in Arts Participation Grant

DEADLINE AUGUST 23

The FY 2020 Partners in Arts Participation grant program is now open for application. 

Partners in Arts Participation is a grant program designed to broaden opportunities for Minnesotans to participate in the arts. Grant funds may be used by Minnesota nonprofit health or human service organizations to integrate the arts into their programming or services. Applicants may choose to have their constituents engage in existing high quality arts experiences, and/or may work with an artist or arts organization to design experiences tailored to meet the needs of the constituents they serve. 

The deadline to submit applications is Friday, August 23, 2019. All applications must be submitted and accepted before 4:30 p.m. on the day of the deadline.

All applicants should first review the program overview and application instructions available on the Arts Board Web site. Additionally, first time applicants and those in need of support are encouraged to speak with program officer Natalie Kennedy.
