Earlier this month, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the six U.S. Regional Arts Organizations (RAOs) announced a new grant program designed to increase arts participation and support for historically underserved communities. ArtsHERE supports organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to equity within their practices and programming and have undertaken consistent engagement with underserved groups/communities. Grants are for specific projects that will strengthen the organization’s capacity to sustain meaningful community engagement and increase arts participation for underserved groups/communities. Grantees have access to peer-learning and technical assistance opportunities designed to share knowledge and build networks. ArtsHERE will award approximately 95 nonprofit organizations nationally with non-matching grants of $65,000 to $130,000.
