The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) recently released guidelines for two programs to distribute American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds to arts organizations across the country. Through the ARP Grant Program: Rebuilding the Creative Community, funds will help preserve jobs and support art organizations in communities of all sizes by covering general operating costs. These two opportunities are open to local arts agencies and nonprofit arts and culture organizations regardless of whether they have received past NEA funding, significantly expanding access to federal funds for the arts and culture sector. The Arts Endowment is actively seeking first-time applicants that may not have previously received NEA funding, and this workshop will provide content for first-time as well as former NEA applicants.
Join the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP), the National Performance Network (NPN), and the National Endowment for the Arts at a webinar on July 21, 3 pm ET to explore this new funding program, learn how to register your organization to be eligible for federal funding, and participate in a Q&A session.
