Grants ranging from $2,000 to $20,000 to United States, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Panama individual artists, non-profits, and community-based organizations seeking financial assistance for high-quality arts exchange projects that support, preserve, or extend the cultural practices between linked communities in two or more of the above mentioned Countries.

These grants support projects that build upon, and extend, cultural knowledge across borders and result in an ongoing exchange of knowledge, customs, and creativity from one country to another.

Just as there are systems in place to transmit financial remittances between migrant populations and their home communities, transnational populations have developed artistic remittances through which cultural or social capital is exchanged to promote community well-being, human rights, social justice, economic empowerment, and interconnectedness among members. The NALAC Transnational Cultural Remittances grant program aims to support emerging and established projects that fulfill this function.
