 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dayton Hudson Foundation and Dayton Hudson Corporation's (NYSE: DH) operations in Minnesota -- Target and Dayton's -- made $1.3 million in grants to Minnesota social action and arts programs in January. Total corporate-wide giving in Minnesota was $8.4 million during fiscal year 1991 ended Feb. 1, 1992.

 Minnesota social action programs receiving grants in January included the academic skills development and employment services provided by the Loring-Nicollet-Bethlehem Community Centers of Minneapolis ($50,000), the community development efforts of the West Bank Community Development Corporation ($27,500), and the Center School's alternative education programs for students at risk of dropping out ($25,000).

On behalf of Target, the Payne/Phalen Family Support Project and the Frogtown Family Resource Center jointly received a $10,000 grant for parent support services for disadvantaged families.
 Minnesota arts programs receiving grants in January included an $87,000 grant to the City of Minneapolis for the development of a comprehensive arts and cultural policy for the city.
