|Funding or Award Criteria||
Grants for Arts Projects support exemplary projects in artist communities, arts education, dance, design, folk and traditional arts, literature, local arts agencies, media arts, museums, music, opera, presenting and multidisciplinary works, theater and musical theater, and visual arts.
This category supports the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and the strengthening of communities through the arts.
Grants generally range from $10,000 to $100,000
Challenge America Fast-Track
The Challenge America Fast-Track category offers support primarily to small and mid-sized organizations for projects that extend the reach of the arts to underserved populations -- those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability. Age alone (e.g., youth, seniors) does not qualify a group as underserved; at least one of the underserved characteristics noted above also must be present. Grants are available for professional arts programming and for projects that emphasize the potential of the arts in community development.
This category encourages and supports the following two outcomes:

Separate and Identifiable Components

Each Independent component must send information pertaining to their vetted candidate/project to email@example.com to ensure that application is recognized as the official component nominee.
