The Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council is pleased to announce that grants of $103,682 from the Arts and Culture Heritage Fund have been awarded to nineteen organizations in the region. This fund was created by the people of Minnesota to support the arts and preserve our heritage. The Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment, passed by the voters in November, 2008, created new resources for land conservation, water conservation, parks and the Arts.
