Challenge America

Grantor: National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)
Posted: December 12, 2017
Due: April 12, 2018

The Challenge America category offers support primarily to small and mid-sized organizations for projects that extend the reach of the arts to underserved populations - those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability. Age alone (e.g., youth, seniors) does not qualify a group as underserved; at least one of the underserved characteristics noted above also must be present. Please provide details about the underserved audience you select in your application. Grants are available for professional arts programming and for projects that emphasize the potential of the arts in community development.

Eligibility:

  • Nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3), U.S. organizations
  • Units of state or local government
  • Federally recognized tribal communities or tribes.

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.

If your organization applies to the Challenge America category, it may not submit another application to the Art Works category.
