US National Endowment for the Arts Announces $135 Million in Relief Funds 

The organization supports exemplary arts projects in national communities through grants, initiatives, partnerships, and events

This year, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) will see the distribution of $135 million in American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds.

The ARP is arranged to assist in the recovery of the nation from the economic and health effects of the pandemic. The funds allocated to the NEA for distribution signifies its commitment to the arts and recognition of the impacts the arts have on the nation’s economy and recovery.

Applications from a range of eligible organizations are encouraged. The ARP funding exists through two separate competitive opportunities; the first is open to individual nonprofit arts and culture organizations and the second is available for local arts agencies for sub-granting.

For the first sector, applicants may request a fixed grant amount for $50,000, $100,000 or $150,000. About 800 awards will be made for these individual organizations with the application deadline of August 12, 2021.

For the second sector, eligible local arts agencies may apply for a fixed grant amount of $150,000, $250,000, or $500,000 for sub-granting programs. Around 80 awards are anticipated to be made and applicants must have a history of grantmaking anytime in a ten-year period immediately preceding this sector’s application deadline which is July 22, 2021.
