SEMAC announces Oct. 1 deadline for grant application

The grant process is open at SEMAC.

The Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council is calling for proposals in three categories: Arts & Cultural Heritage, Presenter/Production Assistance, and Small Towns/Rural Areas. All proposed projects must take place between Dec. 1 and Nov. 30, 2016, and culminate in a capstone event that is accessible and open to the public.

For information about the grant application process, eligibility, or grant writing assistance, contact the SEMAC office at 2778 D Commerce Dr NW, Rochester, MN 55901 or call 507-281-4848. Information may also be found online at www.semac.org.

The online application process opened Sept. 1. Applicants have a full 30 days to complete the online application, and must submit no later than 11:59 p.m. Oct. 1. For a link to the grant interface, visit the application page at www.semac.org.

SEMAC hopes to support and encourage the creation and development of art and arts organizations in communities with populations under 7,500. This support may be used for assistance in activities which directly involve the creation, performance, publication, or exhibition of art or assistance in administrative, operating, or capital expenditures. Applicants may include arts organizations, government entities and public or non-religious private schools, either individually or in cooperation.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.
