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 Arts Endowment.


Our arts education funding is focused on students. Projects are for pre-K-12 students, the educators and civic leaders who support them, and the schools and communities that serve them. All students are served when each level of the system is supported. Applicants should consider what role their proposed project plays within this system, and how their project impacts students. Funded projects will utilize and test innovative strategies, or scale up proven methodologies, for increasing access to arts education for more students.
