The Minnesota State Arts Board has posted guidelines and application forms for the FY 2023 Creative Support for Individuals grant program.  The program offers flexible support for Minnesota artists and culture bearers.

This grant program provides support to help individual artists and culture bearers sustain their creative practices and meaningfully engage with their communities in a time of transition. Creative Support grants are designed to be flexible and allow for adaptability in response to unexpected changes during the grant period. While proposed grant activities may focus more heavily on one or the other, applicants must demonstrate how funds will be used both to continue a creative practice and meaningfully connect to and engage audiences, participants, students, and/or communities during the grant period.

There will be two application deadlines—one on May 6, 2022, and another on July 15, 2022. 

This is a statewide program.  Anyone who meets the eligibility requirements is welcome to apply. 

Please visit the Creative Support for Individuals Web page to find the complete FY 2023 Program Overview and Application Instructions, details about eligibility and grant amounts, and resources to help you learn more about the program.


The Minnesota State Arts Board is a state agency that stimulates and encourages the creation, performance, and appreciation of the arts in the state. It works to ensure that all Minnesotans can participate in and benefit from the arts.
