Grants of up to $5,000 to Nevada public middle schools and high schools in rural districts to purchase musical instruments. Funding is intended to provide current and future students with the opportunity to participate in music programs such as band, orchestra, mariachi, and strings. Applicants must demonstrate need and detail the expected community benefit. Instruments will remain the property of the school and available for the continuous loan and use by participating students.

The goal of the program is to make musical instruments available to students who might not otherwise be able to afford them and enable local schools to maintain the ownership for student use for years.
