In 2008, Minnesota voters passed the Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment, resulting in the establishment of the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Legacy-funded grants totaling $200,985 in has been awarded to individual artists, arts organizations, non-profits, schools, and government offices in Beltrami County since 2010.
Upcoming 2012 deadlines for Region 2 Arts Council Legacy-funded grants are Feb. 15 for the Community Arts Support Grant and April 11 for the Artist Mentor Grant Program. Another Arts and Cultural Heritage grants round will take place in August.
