Construction and renovation of an expanded production and broadcast facility.

Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) respectfully requests a grant of $800,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant Program to stimulate successful completion of MPR's $46 Million Capital Campaign, The Next Standard. The Campaign will provide capital to expand and renovate our production and broadcast facilities in downtown Saint Paul ($41 Million) and support three content-development initiatves that will 1) create a new digital audio archive for MPR's programming, 2) substantially increase our arts and cultural programming, and 3) use new network technology and knowledge management tools to draw the knowledge and expertise in our audience into the creation of our daily journalism. NEH's Challenge Grant and matching support will be dedicated toward construction and renovation costs of the expanded production and broadcast facility. Completion of this facility is crucial to the future of MPR, and will substantially enhance our capacity to produce and disseminate high quality humanities content to our region and the nation.
