Our grant programs are an investment in the people, institutions, programs and projects that contribute to the health and well-being of our community at large. These funds make the arts more accessible, sustain a vibrant arts sector and recognize excellence in the arts.
In addition to grants, The Arts Partnership provides financial support to artists and arts organizations through emergency funds and a unique program to offset artist studio rent.
City Arts Partnership Grants
City Arts Partnership Grants, funded by the Tri-Cities, provide foundational support for the Metro’s non-profit arts organizations, from its largest and longest-lived arts institutions to small grassroots organizations. Together, these vital arts entities provide programs, performances and services that annually reach a regional audience of more than 750,000.
Individual Arts Partnership Grants
Individual Arts Partnership (IAP) grants support artists and musicians at any career stage, helping them realize their artistic vision, improve their artistic skills and build sustainable careers. A portion of IAP grants are funded by dollars from the Erin Koffler Memorial Fund, the Moorhead PEO and individual donors.
