Arts and Culture Grant logo.jpg

The Arts & Culture Grant Program is a collaborative program between the City of St. Louis Park, the St. Louis Park Youth Development Fund and St. Louis Park Friends of the Arts. The program provides funding for new arts projects or programs that support community pride, connect artists and the community, and engage people in creative learning.

Submission deadline: Applications for 2020 projects are closed. Applications for 2021 projects will be made available in the spring, with a submission deadline in the fall.

It is highly recommended to discuss your project idea with program staff before beginning a grant proposal. Contact Jamie Marshall at 952-928-6422 or jamie@slpfota.org to schedule.
