MN CARES Act Grants

The federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act recognizes that the nonprofit arts industry is an important sector of America's economy. With CARES Act funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Minnesota State Arts Board will award MN CARES Act Grants to arts organizations across the state to help these entities, their employees, and their contracted artists and workers weather the economic hardships caused by the forced cancellation of their activities or closure of their operations due to the spread of COVID-19.

Use of funds

Applicants may request funding from the MN CARES Act Grants program for one or more of the following purposes:

  • Salary support, full or partial, for one or more positions that are critical to an organization’s artistic mission.
  • Fees for artists and/or other contracted personnel to hire new contractors, maintain current contractors, or extend the period of time during which contractors would be employed.
  • Facilities costs such as rent, mortgage, utilities, information technology, security, insurance, building maintenance, or cleaning.
