Congratulations on receiving an LRAC grant!
All grantees are required to publicize their grant activities. This helps to insure continued financial support for the arts from the Minnesota Legislature and The McKnight Foundation.
Access tools to help with your publicity campaign by clicking the links below. Copies of publicity articles should be included in your grant's final report
Inviting your legislators to present your grant check is a great opportunity to publicize your grant and for legislators to interact with their constituents. The check-presentation ceremony has been done before or during intermission of a play or concert, at fundraiser dinners, at receptions for art exhibit openings, board meetings, etc. Your LRAC Board members may also be part of the ceremony. Contact the LRAC office for more suggestions.
LRAC Misuse of Funds Procedure
Beginning July 2019, LRAC implemented a new LRAC Misuse of Funds Procedure for all grants funded by the Minnesota Legislature and the Minnesota Legacy Arts and Cultural Heritage Amendment. This includes the Project Grant, the Operating Support Grant, and the Legacy Individual, Legacy Organization and Local Government Legacy Grants.
All grantees are required to read the LRAC Misuse of Funds Procedure before signing their contract. Please be advised that there are tiered consequences for misuse of funds based on the amount of money and the organization’s actions.
