Per Minnesota Law, the Minnesota Humanities Center administers the Arts and Cultural Heritage Children's Museum Grants. The Humanities Center uses a portion of the funds to provide grants administration, including overseeing the proposal process, agreement drafting, financial and program monitoring, and reporting.
The Humanities Center used a portion of the Legacy funding to provide administrative support for the Collaborative Funds, K-12 Education Initiative, and Community Partnerships programs. This support included general planning meetings, financial management and reporting, and website maintenance and development. The Humanities Center also committed to deepening its ability to evaluate programming by sending staff to external evaluation workshops and hosting a series of five internal workshops with evaluation expert Dr. Michael Patton.
