May 1, 2018, was the deadline for Twin Cities nonprofit arts organizations to apply to VSA Minnesota for grants of up to $15,000 to provide ADA Access Improvements to their facilities or programs. A grant panel will review their applications on June 1, and recipients will be announced the first week in June.
Projects must make significant or long-term improvements to facilities, programming or activities that offer potential to involve more people with disabilities as participants or patrons in arts programs. The next deadline for Twin Cities area nonprofit arts organizations to apply will be in late October. Grant guidelines will be revised somewhat but past guidelines and recipients can be downloaded at http://vsamn.org/arts-organizations/resources-organizations/.
