Applications are now open for Grants for Arts Projects. It is the National Endowment for the Arts’ principal grants program for organizations based in the United States.
Through project-based funding, the program supports public engagement with, and access to, various forms of art across the nation, the creation of excellent art, learning in the arts at all stages of life, and the integration of the arts into the fabric of community life.

Applicants may request cost share/matching grants ranging from $10,000 to $100,000. In the past few years, well over half of the agency’s grants have been for amounts less than $25,000.
Designated local arts agencies eligible to subgrant may request cost share/matching grants ranging from $10,000 to $150,000 for subgranting programs in the Local Arts Agencies discipline.
The two-year period is intended to allow an applicant time to plan, execute, and close out its project, not to repeat a one-year project for a second year.
Nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3), U.S. organizations; units of state or local government; or federally recognized tribal communities or tribes may apply. Applicants may be arts organizations, local arts agencies, arts service organizations, local education agencies (school districts), and other organizations that can help advance the goals of the National Endowment for the Arts.
To be eligible, the applicant organization must:
Meet the National Endowment for the Arts’ “Legal Requirements” including nonprofit, tax-exempt status at the time of application. All organizations must apply directly on their own behalf.
Have completed a three-year history of arts programming prior to the application deadline. For the purpose of defining eligibility, “three-year history” refers to when an organization began its programming and not when it incorporated or received nonprofit, tax-exempt status.
Have submitted acceptable Final Report packages by the due date(s) for all National Endowment for the Arts grant(s) previously received.
An organization whose primary purpose is to channel resources (financial, human, or other) to an affiliated organization is not eligible to apply if the affiliated organization submits its own application. This prohibition applies even if each organization has its own 501(c)(3) status.
For example, the “Friends of ABC Museum” may not apply if the ABC Museum applies.
