Happy long weekend!

Have you ever thought about having your own grant info session with the East Central Regional Arts Council? A virtual private session that fits your schedule? A session that lasts as long as you want it to last, where you could get the answers to your specific questions? Well think about it no more!

If you are in Region 7E, the counties of Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs and Pine, you can schedule your very own virtual grant info session that covers any grant questions you need information on. We call it our virtual consultation drop-ins!

 Do you have question like:

  • When can I apply?
  • What grant should I apply for?
  • Is my art project eligible for a grant?
  • How do I apply for a grant?
  • What type of art projects are funded?
  • What are the requirements to be eligible for funding?

Now you can set up your own session to get the answers you need. And the length and format of the session is up to you! Whether you need just 10-15 minutes or an hour. Or whether you had in mind a Q & A session or a more formal presentation. You pick the format and topic(s), and the length of time you need. We schedule a time that fits your schedule, set it up, and send you a link for the session. And there’s just no better time than now to get those answers! It’s really that easy!

Interested? Just send me an email at grantinfo@ecrac.org or give me a call at (320) 591-7034. We’ll schedule a time that works for you and get you all set up!

If you prefer to attend a grant info session that is already scheduled, you can do that too! We offer grant info sessions once a month. Email grantinfo@ecrac.org for more information or to register for any upcoming session.
