Nebraska Arts Council (NAC)
Grants ranging from $2,000 to $15,000 to Nebraska public schools, nonprofits, public agencies, and educational service units for arts education programs. The programs may benefit students in grades PreK-12 or take place in community settings.
Funding may go towards expenses such as artistic fees, related travel expenses, production and exhibition costs, marketing expenses, and planning and evaluation. Teacher release time, workshop fees and other education related expenses are also acceptable uses of funding.
Projects may take place in PreK-12 schools or in community settings.
Community-based projects must incorporate educational learning outcomes in the arts. School-based projects must incorporate local, state, or national educational learning standards in the arts, and may also be aligned with standards in other disciplines.
Highest priority for funding will be given to projects that identify, develop, and support best practices in educational and cultural collaborations addressing educational learning standards.
Requests exceeding $7,500 must be school-based, including more than one school, or must involve significant outreach in multiple communities.
