National Endowment for the Arts Challenge America Fast-Track Grants

The National Endowment for the Arts is accepting applications through April 16 for the Challenge America Fast-Track grants program. NEA will award fixed grants of $10,000 (1:1 match) to small and midsize organizations for projects designed to extend the reach of the arts to under-served populations, including those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability. Applicants may be arts organizations, local arts agencies, art service organizations, local education agencies (school districts), and other organizations that can help advance NEA goals. Partnerships between organizations, both in and outside  the arts, are eligible. All organizations must have a three-year history of programming prior to the application deadline.
