CARES Act Guidelines: Applicant Eligibility
Nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3), U.S. organizations; units of state or local government; or federally recognized tribal communities or tribes may apply. Applicants may be arts organizations, local arts agencies, arts service organizations, local education agencies (school districts), and other organizations that can help advance the goals of the National Endowment for the Arts.
To be eligible, the applicant organization must:
You may apply to other National Endowment for the Arts funding opportunities, including Grants for Arts Projects. In each case, the request must be for a distinctly different project or a distinctly different phase of the same project, with a different period of performance and costs. For example, an orchestra could request support for an arts education coordinator through this program (one project). That same arts education coordinator could work on programs related to another Arts Endowment grant (a second project), as long as the same time is not charged to both projects.
The designated fifty state and six jurisdictional arts agencies (SAAs), their regional arts organizations (RAOs), and the national service organization of SAAs and RAOs are not eligible to apply under these guidelines. SAAs and RAOs receive CARES Act funds separately.
