National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)
08/12/21 11:59 PM Eastern Time
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, school districts, and tribes to support recovery in the arts sector from the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for general operating support.
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (“Rescue Plan”) is designed to fuel the nation’s recovery from the devastating economic and health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds allocated to the National Endowment for the Arts (“Arts Endowment”) in this historic legislation represent a significant commitment to the arts and a recognition of the value of the arts and culture sector to the nation’s economy and recovery.
Because Congress envisioned this aid to support the arts community, grant funds must be allocated to the arts program/departments/section/office or arts-related activities of the grant recipient.
The Arts Endowment intends to make awards that will impact a broad constituency. Applications are encouraged from a variety of eligible organizations including: organizations that serve populations that are underserved such as those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by ethnicity, economics, geography, or disability; organizations with small and medium-sized budgets; organizations from rural to urban communities; and organizations that may be applying for federal support through the Arts Endowment for the first time.
Unlike other Arts Endowment funding programs that offer project-based support, Rescue Plan funds are intended to support day-to-day business expenses/operating costs, and not specific programmatic activities. Support is limited to any or all of the following:
Rescue Plan funds may be used to support existing jobs, new jobs, or to restore jobs that were furloughed or eliminated due to the pandemic.
GrantWatch ID#: 197081
