McKnight Arts grantees who would normally apply to renew their grants in 2020 will receive a grant extension due to Covid-19. These organizations will receive an email notification of the extension from the Arts team. No action is required from these grantees.
Additionally, McKnight has implemented an automatic three-month extension on all scheduled grant reports. Please speak to your program contact to request other potential adjustments to your grant agreements such as the grant purpose or time frame.
New organizations, projects, or programs that do not currently have grants with McKnight’s Arts program are encouraged to apply to our October initial inquiry round, October 1–15. Please contact your program officer or Robyn Browning, Arts program and grants associate, with questions.
