Minnesota's Legacy

Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund

The Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund receives 19.75 percent of the sales tax revenue resulting from the Legacy amendment to support arts, arts education and arts access, and to preserve Minnesota's history and cultural heritage.  Based on current sales tax revenue, Minnesotans will invest more than $1.2 billion in arts and cultural heritage fund projects and programs over the 25 year life of the tax.

A portion of the dollars appropriated from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund are being made available through grant programs. To learn more about funding opportunities available through these grant programs, please visit the websites below:
