The Arts Impact for Groups grant provides up to $10,000 in funding for groups led by Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC); and/or Disabled People / People with Disabilities; and/or Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual/Agender, Two-Spirit (LGBTQIA2+). Groups must be located in Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington county. This grant is designed to be an infusion of funds to support a group’s ability to create access to the arts.
Your grant proposal could include an arts programming activity such as a single event (e.g. theater production) or a series (e.g. semester of painting classes). Organizational capacity activities might include a coordinated management effort that bolsters the organization’s ability to do its work (like rebranding, building a website, or overhauling financial tracking systems), and/or could include the purchase of equipment, or making facilities improvements. Operations activities could be those that support the ongoing operations of a group (such as paying staff salaries or rent on a space). All of these types of activities, independently, or in some combination, could be the organization’s “project” or “program.”
The deadline for Arts Impact for Groups applications is February 7, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. Please read the guidelines before you apply.
