The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has announced two programs to distribute American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds. These programs are open to nonprofit arts and culture organizations and local arts agencies, regardless of whether they have received NEA funding in the past.
There are two funding opportunities available—one for arts and culture organizations, and one for local arts agencies to subgrant. (Local arts agency applicants must be an arts agency that is a unit of city or county government or a nonprofit arts service organization officially designated to operate as an arts agency on behalf of its local government.) All applications will be reviewed by panelists from around the country, including artists, administrators, and laypeople from diverse backgrounds. No grants will be awarded on a “first come, first served” basis.
The NEA application deadline for Maine arts and cultural organizations is August 12, 2021. Read the organization guidelines for full details.
The NEA application deadline for local arts agencies for subgranting is July 22, 2021. Read the local arts agencies subgranting guidelines for full details.
The NEA is developing a suite of technical assistance tools including videos, and FAQs. Today, June 30, Arts Endowment staff is hosting a free webinar at 4 p.m. EST.
