About CURA's Artist Neighborhood Partnership Initiative

The Artist Neighborhood Partnership Initiative (ANPI) provides small grants to artists of color and Native artists working in neighborhoods in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the surrounding suburbs. ANPI is a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA).

ANPI grants recognize the valuable role that artists and the arts play in the work of fostering neighborhood wellbeing, and are intended to support the leadership of artists in these efforts. This grant program is particularly focused on directly funding individual artists or groups of artists working to build a more equitable Twin Cities.

The goals of the program are to identify and support compelling projects that artists have developed in response to their community’s specific challenges and opportunities. 

We are currently reviewing applications for the 2020 Artist Neighborhood Partnership Initiative grants and will be replying to all applicants in March 2020.
