Nebraska Arts Council (NAC)
Grants ranging from $2,000 to $7,500 to Nebraska nonprofit organizations and government agencies for arts events, productions, and programs serving public audiences. Possible project types include arts festivals, ethnic heritage projects, community murals, exhibitions, poetry readings, performances, commissions, and new work development.
This grantmaking category may include projects supporting artists and cultural activities that broaden opportunities for underserved communities. The National Endowment for the Arts defines an underserved community as one whose residents often lack access to arts programs due to geographic isolation and/or have limited access to arts resources and programs due to economics, ethnic background, disability, or age.
Support is limited to an arts project taking place within a defined period of time. The program or event may have multiple components and/or performances.
