National Endowment for the Arts grant opportunities


National Endowment for the Arts grant opportunities open to organizations in our SW MN Arts region.

The NEA would like to receive more applications and be able to make more grants from our congregational districts. There are two more deadlines in the NEA’s current fiscal year:



These grants support artistically excellent projects that celebrate our creativity and cultural heritage, invite mutual respect for differing beliefs and values, and enrich humanity.

Next application deadline:  July 12, 2018



Our Town is the National Endowment for the Arts’ creative placemaking grants program. These grants support projects that integrate arts, culture, and design activities into efforts that strengthen communities by advancing local economic, physical, and/or social outcomes.

Next application deadline:  August 9, 2018
