St. Louis Park Arts and Culture Grant
All artists and arts organizations are encouraged to apply to the St. Louis Park Arts and Culture Grant Program with projects that occur in St. Louis Park and align with eligibility requirements, regardless of residency or prior affiliation with St. Louis Park. 

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 makes grant dollars available every year for music, visual arts, theater, film, multimedia, dance and other art projects. It provides funding for new arts programs that support community pride, connect artists and the community, and engage people in creative learning.

Artists, arts groups, students, community groups, and neighborhood, cultural and religious organizations are encouraged to apply. Applicants do not need to live in St. Louis Park, but projects must take place within the city.
