MSAB Needs Assessment for Individ. Artists

Artists of the Arrowhead,

The Minnesota State Arts Board is conducting a needs assessment for individual artists and wants to hear from you! Don't pass up this opportunity to have your voice heard.

The Arts Board will use findings from this survey to inform its programs and services. Responses like yours will help identify what areas artists see as their greatest needs or priorities, and the Arts Board will then determine whether a different way of allocating Arts Board resources could better meet those needs. The Arts Board will also share summary findings with other organizations that work with, support, and promote artists.

The survey takes about 25 minutes to complete. You can save your responses and return to them later. To participate, follow this link:

Thank you,

Ashley Kolka
Grants Manager
Arrowhead Regional Arts Council

Sign up for REEP now

Cook County Local Energy Project (CCLEP) has a Residential Energy Efficiency Program (REEP). REEP is designed to increase the energy efficiency of homes by using home performance energy audits before and after improvement work. The program is open to all income levels.  Homeowners pay for the audit ($400) and improvements, but an audit rebate ($300) is available with completion of selected improvements within 18 months of the initial audit.

Here's how it works:

REEP audits consist of a blower door test that measures precisely how much air infiltrates a home. Infrared camera imaging measures surface temperatures and is used in conjunction with the blower door to detect where major infiltration occurs by locating temperature differences.  These two tools along with other devices allow an auditor to gather more information about a home that may not be obvious visually.

The home performance energy audit also involves a visual inspection of the home to help determine what improvements can be recommended to increase energy efficiency. This also increases building durability, comfort, and saves homeowners money. Audit reports help homeowners decide what improvements make the most sense for their budget and what is best for their home. 

Contact CCLEP Coordinator Virginia Danfelt at to set up an audit.
