The American Rescue Plan funds administered by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) will be awarded to support jobs in the arts and culture sector, keep the doors open to nonprofit organizations nationwide, and assist the field in its recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This specialized grant process is distinct from other NEA grantmaking opportunities, and interest is encouraged from all eligible applicants, whether or not organizations are prior NEA grantees.  

In this webinar, hosted by the League of American Orchestras, NEA Music Director Ann Meier Baker and NEA Music Specialist Court Burns provided an overview of the American Rescue Plan Grants for Organizations; shared information on determining eligibility, how to apply, and tips for your application, and provided time for questions and answers.
