On November 16, 2010, the board of directors of the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council, Inc. (SEMAC) awarded 29 grants for a total of $166,240 in funding to applicants throughout southeastern Minnesota. This included fourteen Presenter/Production Assistance Grants for $41,500, ten Small Towns/Rural Areas Grants for $25,055, and five Arts & Cultural Heritage Grants for $99,685 to arts organizations. The latter funding is made possible by the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.

The SEMAC region includes the counties of Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha, and Winona.
