Nat’l Endowment for the Arts Announces CARES Act Funding Guidelines
The National Endowment for the Arts announced its guidelines to distribute funding to nonprofit arts organizations impacted by COVID-19
$75 million has been appropriated to the National Endowment for the Arts through the CARES Act. Funds will be awarded in multiple categories:
Funds for Current and Recent Arts Endowment Grantees
More than 3,700 organizations that have received National Endowment for the Arts awards in the past four years are eligible to apply for a direct grant. Funds can be used for staff salary support, fees for artists or contractual personnel, and facilities costs. The direct grants will not require a cost share or match and will be for a fixed amount of $50,000.
Subgranting Funds for Local Arts Agencies
Designated local arts agencies eligible to subgrant may request $100,000 or $250,000 for subgranting programs.
As with all of the NEA’s direct grants, applications will be reviewed by panels convened by the NEA and judged on artistic excellence and merit, which includes the potential to have a significant and immediate impact on the arts workforce and the organization’s ability to carry out an award.
Funds for State & Regional Arts Agencies, including NYSCA
The Arts Endowment will award 40 percent of the CARES appropriation directly to state and regional arts agencies by April 30th. NYSCA will share further information as soon as it is available.
