Grants for Minnesota County Fairs to
Enhance Programs and Facilities

GrantWatch ID#: 130495
Agency Type:

Grants are available to Minnesota's county fairs for projects that expand the fairs' existing activities and outreach in order to engage broader audiences. Eligible activities include improving facilities, enhancing arts access and education, or preserving and promoting Minnesota’s agricultural, historical, and cultural heritage.

Three different categories will be funded: Construction and Capital Improvement; Event Enhancement; Programming. Fairs can submit applications for all three categories, but it is the MDA's goal to award one grant per fair. Grantee can rank which proposal they prefer to have funded.

Overall program goals:
* To ensure all Minnesotans have the opportunity to participate in the arts, arts education, and in programs that preserve and promote Minnesota’s historical and cultural heritage.
* To increase exposure to, and preserve, the diversity of cultural heritages that make up Minnesota’s history and culture.
* To promote and highlight artistic excellence and exceptional programming, administered by state and local organizations and by individuals.
* To engage new audiences by removing barriers—whether they be geographic, economic, related to age, racial/ethnic characteristics, disability—to access the arts, arts education, and programs that preserve and promote Minnesota’s agricultural, historical, and cultural heritage.
