We’re invested in the arts.

The Arts Partnership provides grants to both nonprofits and individual artists to invest in the overall health and well-being of the arts in the Fargo-Moorhead Metro.

2020 CAP Grants CLOSED

The Arts Partnership will not be accepting applications for the Spring 2020 City Arts Partnership (CAP) grants.

Our Board of Directors unanimously agreed to extend CAP funding to organizations that received Spring 2019 CAP grants.  

We believe this is one positive way to hopefully lessen the anxiety, financially and administratively for these organizations with which we have had long-established funding relationships.

Looking forward, apply for CAP grant during the Spring 2021 grant cycle.
