Arts Access Grant Awarded

At the December 14, 2023 meeting, the Central MN Arts Board (CMAB) awarded a $5,000 Arts Access Grant to Too Much Talent, a nonprofit that provides arts-based youth development programming in Saint Cloud, MN.

The goal of the proposal is to provide student training and development techniques in Majorette style dancing through partnerships with dance studios located in Central Minnesota.

The Arts Access Grant program provides up to $5,000 in funding to cultural community groups and nonprofit organizations in support of arts-focused activities that increase Minnesotan’s access to the arts and celebrate diverse cultural expression. Funding for this grant program is provided through the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund created by the Voters of Minnesota.

The Central Minnesota Arts Board supports collaborative and innovative arts opportunities through partnerships and financial investments in Benton, Sherburne, Stearns, and Wright counties as one of eleven Regional Arts Councils designated by the Minnesota State Arts Board working with community partners to increase access to the unique cultural assets of Minnesota.
