The Metropolitan Regional Arts Council is accepting applications to the Arts Activities Support program.

This program provides grants of project support for nonprofit IRS 501(c)(3) arts organizations, non-arts nonprofits and community education units with art programming, and informal/unincorporated arts groups applying with a nonprofit as a fiscal sponsor.

Funding is intended for quality arts activities in any discipline to communities within the seven-county metropolitan area of Minnesota. Grant requests may include costs for artists and other personnel, facility and/or equipment rental, postage, supplies, printing and other expenses necessary to carry out the project.
