Minnesota State Arts Board launches the 
first grant opportunity for its 2022 grant cycle

The Minnesota State Arts Board has opened the first grant program for its fiscal year 2022 grant cycle (July 2021 – June 2022).  Application materials and the online application portal are now available for the FY 2022 Operating Support grant program.  Applications are due Friday, January 22, 2021, before 4:30 p.m.

Operating Support provides general support to high quality, established arts organizations that produce, present, or exhibit works of art; to organizations that provide a broad range of services to artists; and to community arts schools and conservatories that make arts learning available to Minnesotans of all ages and abilities.

All Arts Board grant programs are open, statewide, to any applicant that meets the eligibility requirements.  Specific requirements for this program are listed in the FY 2022 Operating Support Program Overview and Application Instructions document posted on the Arts Board website:  http://www.arts.state.mn.us/grants/operating-support.htm

First time applicants are encouraged to carefully review the Program Overview and Application Instructions and then call the program officer prior to beginning an application.

The board will announce other fiscal year 2022 grant opportunities early in 2021.
