CMAB Grant Writing Webinar
The Central MN Arts Board offers art grant programs for individuals, arts groups, arts and community organizations, schools and municipalities in Benton, Sherburne, Stearns and Wright counties.

CMAB Program officer, Heather Allen, presents a 4-session webinar designed to take you through the steps of planning an arts grant proposal. The guidance and resources you receive can be used to apply for grant funds in support of your artistic vision.

  • Learn about common mistakes grant writers make and how to avoid them
  • Spend time gathering contacts and resources that will make your project a success
  • Build or strengthen the plan for your creative endeavor
  • Receive guidance and support

This course may serve as an introduction to grant writing, if you have never applied for a grant before, but will also benefit those who already have applied for grants in the past.  Help us to make meaningful and lasting contributions to Region 7W’s cultural fabric.  Join us and take steps to make your artistic vision a reality!
