New funding for arts organizations

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEAannounced two new grant program guidelines to distribute approximately $80 million in American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds directly to nonprofit arts and culture organizations and to local arts agencies to subgrant deeper into communities across the country. The NEA is providing robust technical assistance and Americans for the Arts will be hosting an ArtsU free webinar (see below) to provide additional assistance with speakers from the NEA.

If you represent a nonprofit arts or culture organization, please register now for the ArtsU Free Webinar on Tuesday, July 6th @ 3:00pm ET to learn more about the specific guidelines for this program.

Applicants for this new grant program will NOT have to be a previous NEA grantee to be eligible to apply. There is a quick turnaround time for submitting applications.

If you have more federal COVID-19 relief questions, including the latest on Shuttered Venues Operator Grants, please join Nina Ozlu Tunceli at her next weekly Zoom Office Hours on Friday, June 25th @ 11:00 am ET to ask questions and share experiences.
