Challenge America

Deadline Date: 04/12/2018

Agency: NEA

Scope: The National Endowment for the Arts seeks applications for the Challenge America announcement to offer support primarily to small and midsized organizations for projects that extend the reach of the arts to underserved populations—those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics or disability. Funds: $10,000 per award. A 1:1 match is required. Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations and state, local and Native American tribal governments. Areas: NEA said the involvement of experienced artists and arts professionals is essential. Grants are available only for the Guest Artist project type, which refers to an arts event or events that will feature one or more guest artists. The guest artist is engaged specifically for the proposed project and is not considered a resident artist, regular company member or individual currently serving on the artistic staff of the applicant organization. Website:
