Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Grants Program

Deadline: TOMORROW, April 22, 2020

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) released the CARES Act Guidelines for grants to arts organizations to preserve artistic and administrative jobs and to cover facilities costs, such as rent and utilities. Awards will fund nonprofit arts organizations across the country to help these entities and their employees endure the economic hardships caused by the forced closure of their operations due to the spread of COVID-19. There is a quick turn-around on the application process with requests due on April 22, 2020.

This program will be carried out through one-time grants to eligible nonprofit organizations to support:
• Salary support, full or partial, for one or more positions that are critical to an organization’s artistic mission.
• Fees for artists and/or contractual personnel to maintain or expand the period during which such persons would be engaged.
• Facilities costs such as rent and utilities.
