SEMAC announces February 1 grant application deadline


Fri, Nov 25th, 2011
Posted in Arts & Culture

The Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council announces a call for grant proposals in three categories. Postmark deadline is February 1, 2012. Projects must take place between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013.

SEMAC is a non-profit arts agency and is the State of Minnesota Arts Board-designated regional arts council for the counties of Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha, and Winona.

Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund Grants

Proposals for Arts & Cultural Heritage fund ranging from $3,000 to $10,000 are accepted from qualified applicants. A match of 20% is required in this category.

The Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund will support arts focused activities in three key areas: 1) Arts and Arts Access, 2) Arts Education, and 3) Arts and Cultural Heritage. SEMAC encourages applicants to research and develop proposals that incorporate two or more of the key areas with an emphasis on creating lasting partnerships among regional nonprofit arts organizations and other nonprofit groups. In addition to eligible arts organizations, nonprofits that do not have arts as a primary focus, such as schools, senior centers, community education, cultural groups and colleges are invited to apply.

Future funding of Arts and Cultural Heritage Grants depends on appropriate use of current funding. SEMAC urges arts organizations, non-arts organizations with an arts component, and government entities to apply.

First-time applicants must call the SEMAC office to sign up for a grant writing workshop. All applicants are encouraged to attend these workshops.

The dates will be in September; to sign up, call the SEMAC office at 507-281-4848.

General Operating Support Grants

General operating support is designed to strengthen and stabilize arts organizations with operating expenses of less than $150,000 in the previous year. The fiscal year, or accounting period for which funding is requested, must not begin before April 1, 2012, and must conclude within one calendar year. In lieu of the single capstone event required for other grant categories, applications should include a schedule of all events planned during the covered time period.

Proposals for organizational development will be accepted from eligible arts organizations that have been programming for a minimum of three years. Colleges and universities are ineligible. The maximum amount for this grant is $4,000. No match is .....
