Learn about opportunities for all organizations!!!

The East Central Regional Arts Council (ECRAC) has scheduled upcoming grant information sessions for all Region 7E organizations (art groups, writing groups, dance troupes, community theater, community organizations, nonprofits, units of government, schools, etc). These sessions will include information about all ECRAC grant programs for organizations, grant writing tips, as well as recent changes to the grant application processes. Region 7E is the east central Minnesota Counties of Chisago, Kanabec, Isanti, Mille Lacs, and Pine. 

If a representative from your organization has already attended a grant information session, a refresher is always a good idea to keep you up to date with any new grant requirements or recent changes to the ECRAC granting processes.

Grant info sessions for organizations will be on Thursdays: July 12, 2018 at 10 am; August 23, 2018 at 5:30 pm; September 13 at 10 am; October 25, at 5:30 pm; and November 8, at 10 am.

These sessions will be held at the ECRAC office, 112 Main Ave S, Braham, MN. There is no fee to attend but advance registration is strongly encouraged. To register, please call the East Central Regional Arts Council office at (320) 396-2337 x 1, or email  

If you can’t make a session but would like further information on the granting process feel free to contact Grant Program Officer Katina Eklund at (320) 396-2337 x 2 or by email at

These grant programs and activities are made possible thanks to Minnesota legislative appropriations from the State General Fund and the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
