Application Resources

MRAC wants to make sure the application process is accessible and available for you to share who your group is and future project ideas. Here are some ways we are trying to make the process accessible:

Arts Impact for Individuals program page

The Arts Impact for Individuals program page (https://mrac.org/grants/arts-impact-individual) has a number of resources such as:

Guidelines

  • Arts Impact for Individuals Guidelines FY23 (this document – all applicants must read the guidelines)
  • Appendix: Sample Budgets (includes sample budgets and budget checklists)
  • Appendix: Have an awarded or pending MRAC Grant (individuals who have an awarded or pending grant must review this document, as awarded or pending grants may affect your eligibility)

Application Tools

  • Recorded Grant Information Webinar (see information below)
  • Application template (A Word template that you may use to create your application prior to uploading it to the grant interface)

Application Assistance

  • Registration links for the Virtual Question & Answer Sessions (see information below)
  • Application assistance meeting request form (see information below under Program Directors)
  • The Panel Rating Guide (this describes how the information you provide will be used to review your application)
  • Sample applications that have been funded in past rounds

Recorded Grant Information Webinar

MRAC offers a recorded Grant Information Webinar to learn about the grant program, available on the program page and on the MRAC YouTube account with captions. Automated translated captions into other languages are also available, and you may playback the webinar at a faster or slower speed.

Virtual Question & Answer Sessions

Do you have questions after reviewing the guidelines and/or viewing the webinar? MRAC program directors will host two informal drop-in Zoom sessions to answer brief questions in a large group setting. Please note, this is not a grant information webinar. We recommend viewing the webinar and/or reading the guidelines in advance of attending a Virtual Q & A Session, as many frequently asked questions can be found there. Pre-registration for the Virtual Q & A Session is required. Specific dates/times and registration will be available on the Arts Impact for Individuals program page.

Program Directors

Program directors are available to help with your application. To schedule a video or phone meeting with a program director, visit the Arts Impact for Individuals program page to fill out the  application request meeting request form. You may also call or email the program director listed under Contacts above. There are three types of meetings you may request:

  • Individual Eligibility/Project Ideas Check-in (early in the process)
  • Application Eligibility Review (for when you have a draft ready for us to review for eligibility)
  • Project Check-In (once you received a grant and want to discuss any project changes)

Please note: We will do some initial brainstorming/refining with you about ideas, and will review application materials for eligibility and completeness. We are not able to help with reviewing content beyond eligibility. This is intended to provide general guidance ahead of submission; final eligibility determinations depend on a variety of factors and are made only after an application is submitted.

Additional Online Resources

Visit the Welcome to MRAC page (https://mrac.org/grants) to learn about the MRAC grant application process, an overview of all our grant programs, and more resources related to seeking and receiving MRAC funding.

Language Translation

These guidelines and other materials are translated in Spanish and available on the Arts Impact for Groups program page. MRAC’s website can also be translated into Spanish by clicking the language button or “ES” in the top left corner.

The online grant portal (https://www.grantinterface.com/Home/Logon?urlkey=mrac) has the Google Translate feature to enable application translations in over 100 languages.

Individuals are encouraged to apply in their preferred language. With advance notice, MRAC can contract an interpreter and/or translator to assist during the application process.

Accessibility

MRAC requests that all applicants apply online unless a disability prevents them from doing so.

MRAC works to ensure that grant guidelines, workshop presentations, and any other written materials are created with accessibility principles in mind. Additionally, we are happy to provide materials in Braille, Large Print, or other formats with advanced notice that varies according to format, from one week to on-demand, but even if the notice timeline has elapsed, we may still be able to accommodate the request.

On each grant webpage there is a link to the guidelines in a text format that is friendly to screen readers and text resizing. The company that makes the online application software MRAC uses, Foundant Technologies, suggests using NVDA (https://www.nvaccess.org/about-nvda/), a screen reader software compatible with Windows available for free download.

Applicants with disabilities wishing to use other means to apply can work with MRAC staff to adapt our typical processes to ensure you have equal opportunity to submit an application. Solutions we have previously implemented include filling out an adapted form in Microsoft Word, and providing verbal responses that MRAC will share via audio recording or transcription.

Contact us as early as possible to begin a conversation about how to make sure you have an equal opportunity to apply.

Project Eligibility

Must Enhance Minnesotans’ Access to the Arts

Projects must center enhancing Minnesotans’ access to the arts through projects that: connect Minnesotans with arts and arts experiences; and/or integrating arts into community efforts and projects; and/or connecting Minnesotans with arts learning opportunities.

Must be Distinct from an Awarded or Pending MRAC Grant

Project activities and expenses that are included in another awarded or pending MRAC grant are ineligible. If you include a given expense in your project budgets, you may not include this same expense in any other grant proposal you submit to MRAC. In other words, a project or program can only be funded by one MRAC grant.

Must Occur Only during the Eligible Funding Period

  • The Eligible Funding Period is April 25, 2023 (the earliest eligible Proposal Start Date) to June 30, 2024 (the latest eligible Proposal End Date).
  • The activities and expenses described in the grant application must clearly fall within the Eligible Funding Period. This means that all grant funds must be incurred and spent during the Eligible Funding Period. Including incurred expenses and reimbursements outside of the Eligible Funding Period may deem the entire application ineligible.
    • Incurred expenses are those that are confirmed debts and/or firm promises to pay, whether or not cash has changed hands. Performing artist fees, for example, would be an incurred expense at the time an artist contract is signed, even if payment happens later.
  • Applicants may seek support for any of the following (or a combination of the following), if they fall within the Eligible Funding Period:
    • A first-time project or program the applicant has never produced before;
    • A recurring, annual, or seasonal event the applicant has produced before.

Outside of Minnesota

  • Activities that occur outside the state of Minnesota.
  • Travel expenses to or from Minnesota. You may engage an out-of-state artist or consultant within your project, but their travel expense to get to or from Minnesota cannot be included in an MRAC request.
  • Costs for relocating the applicant’s legal address/residence outside the state of Minnesota.

Ineligible Budget Items & Project Activities

  • Projects that are managed by another individual or entity other than the applicant.
  • Projects and activities designed to raise funds/regrant/donate funds on behalf of another person, organization, or cause. MRAC funds cannot be donated to another organization or person.
  • These dollars cannot substitute other state dollars. This includes:
    • Requests in which any portion of the project budget will be used to pay an artist or arts organization to provide essentially the same services that an ongoing teacher, teaching staff, or arts specialist previously provided or would be expected to provide in a school setting.
    • Requests in which the project will replace discontinued or nonexistent arts programs that should be fulfilling the state’s arts curriculum requirements in schools.
