The biennial plan is a two-year workplan that outlines goals, programs, and services. Each Regional Arts Council is required to submit a biennial plan to the Minnesota State Arts Board prior to receiving any funds from the state. The public meeting is an opportunity to hear what we are planning and to offer feedback.
