Title Art Grants for Rio Grande Valley
Organization Laura Jane Musser Fund
Closing Date Friday, March 16, 2018
Location Minneapolis, MN

Through the Rural Arts Initiative, the Laura Jane Musser Fund hopes to assist nonprofit arts organizations to develop, implement or sustain exceptional artistic opportunities for adults and children in the areas of literary, visual, music and performing arts.  The Fund has recently expanded its grantmaking geography to include the Rio Grande Valley area of Texas (Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr, and Willacy counties).  In recognition of Laura Jane Musser’s life-long commitment to excellence in the arts, and with awareness that pivotal and life-changing experience can occur for individuals through introduction to and participation in the arts, the Fund hopes to encourage and excite a wider population to appreciate, learn, and participate in the arts.

General operating grants of up to $10,000 will be considered for this initiative.

Applicants must be arts organizations that are physically located in rural communities with populations of less than 20,000.

Applications will be accepted online through the Fund’s website from February 16 – March 16, 2018.
