United States Regional Arts Organizations invite applications for ArtsHERE program

The United States Regional Arts Organizations (US RAOs) are a national collective of six place-based nonprofit arts service organizations that aim to strengthen and support arts, culture, and creativity in our regions and nationwide. US RAOs partner with the National Endowment for the Arts, state arts agencies, individuals, and other public and private funders to develop and deliver programs, services, and products that advance arts and creativity.

Applications are invited for the ArtsHERE program, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with South Arts and collaboration with the other five US RAOs. Through grants and peer learning opportunities, ArtsHERE aims to invest in organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to equity within their practices and programming to increase arts participation for underserved groups/communities and share insights that may inform similar funding programs in the future.

ArtsHERE will award approximately 95 nonprofit organizations with non-matching grants of $65,000 to $130,000 to support specific projects that will strengthen each organization’s capacity to sustain meaningful community engagement and increase arts participation for underserved groups/communities. Additionally, ArtsHERE will offer grantees peer-learning and technical assistance opportunities designed to share knowledge and build networks.

Applications are invited from organizations that are diverse in terms of geography, scale of operations, and focus of arts programming, as well as organizations that work at the intersection of the arts and other domains, such as community development, health/well-being, climate/environment, or economic development.

To be eligible, applicants must be nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3), U.S. organizations; federally recognized tribal communities or tribes; or non-federally recognized tribal communities or tribes that are also nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) U.S. organizations. Applicants from the nation’s 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. jurisdictions are eligible to apply.

Statements of interest are due January 19, 2024, and upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application, due April 19, 2024.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the United States Regional Arts Organizations website.

Deadline: January 19, 2024 (Statement of interest)
