NEA Access to Artistic Excellence FY2010, Deadline 2 CFDA 45.024

An organization may submit only one application through one of the following FY2010 Grants for Arts Projects categories: Access to Artistic Excellence, Challenge America: Reaching Every Community Fast-Track Review Grants, Learning in the Arts for Children and Youth.The Arts Endowment's support of a project may start on or after June 1, 2010. Under these guidelines, funding is available for projects only. A project may consist of one or more specific events or activities; it may be a part of an applicant's regular season or activities. Applications are due by August 13, 2009.

Organizations that undertake a single short-term project in a year --a ten-day jazz festival, for example -- could apply for that event, or they could identify certain components (such as the presentation of a key artist and the associated activities) as their project. Describe the activities for which Arts Endowment support is requested, and provide specific information on the artists, productions, venues, distribution plans, etc., that will be involved. Organizations may apply for any or all phases of a project, from its planning through its implementation. A project does not have to be new. Excellent existing projects can be just as competitive as new activities. Projects do not need to be large. The Arts Endowment welcomes small projects that can make a difference in a community or field.

Support is available to organizations for projects that do one or more of the following:
- Provide opportunities for artists to create, refine, perform, and exhibit their work. Present artistic works of all cultures and periods.
- Preserve significant works of art and cultural traditions. Enable arts organizations and artists to expand and diversify their audiences.
- Provide opportunities for individuals to experience and participate in a wide range of art forms and activities.
- Enhance the effectiveness of arts organizations and artists.
- Employ the arts in strengthening communities.

The Arts Endowment is particularly interested in projects that extend the arts to underserved populations -- those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability. This is achieved in part through the use of Challenge America: Reaching Every Community funds.

Please note: Congress has prohibited the Arts Endowment from making direct grants to individuals except for Literature Fellowships, NEA Jazz Masters Fellowships, NEA National Heritage Fellowships in the Folk & Traditional Arts, and National Endowment for the Arts Opera Honors.

June 1, 2010, Earliest Beginning Date for Arts Endowment Period of Support

Stewardship refers to projects that protect, share, or celebrate our collective design heritage. These include, among others:

-Historic preservation activities.
-The exhibition and publication of the design of the past.
-Education and outreach that bring established design practices to American communities.
-Conferences, symposia, and other gatherings that promote the heritage and conservation of design.
-Two panels meet each year, one in Innovation and one in Stewardship. Each area has its own application deadline as noted above. Given the possibility of overlap between the two areas, some applications may qualify for either deadline and panel.
