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.
