The National Endowment for the Arts Supports Projects Extending the Arts to Underserved Populations.
The National Endowment for the Arts, through the Challenge America grant program, offers support for projects that are extending the reach of the arts to underserved populations (e.g., those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability).
Proposals should detail the efforts made to reach the identified underserved population. Grants are available for professional arts programming and for projects that emphasize the potential of the arts in community development. Eligible projects include the use of a guest artist, collaborative marketing campaigns, and community-based public art projects.
