National Endowment for the Arts

As we mark the one year anniversary of the American Rescue Plan bill signing, we want to express our gratitude for the role you played in helping us provide pandemic relief to arts and cultural organizations across the country. We also want to provide you with the NEA’s ARP fact sheet, which we encourage you to share with your networks.

While the NEA’s Recue Plan program represents a historic investment in the arts and culture sector, we recognize that the extraordinary financial needs of organizations and communities far outweigh the available funds awarded through the program. We encourage any applicants who weren’t recommended for ARP or other current grants to pursue future grant opportunities with the NEA and regional, state, and local arts agencies.
