Challenge America Grants Can Extend Arts Access

Challenge America is a grant program of the National Endowment for the Arts that extends the reach of the arts to underserved populations. An abbreviated application and robust technical support are features of the grant program, which provides up to $10,000 in support to projects in all artistic disciplines.

Often, the category is an entry point for organizations seeking funding through the Arts Endowment. The grant program is rooted in principles that recognize the existence of barriers and limitations for some organizations and populations.

Nonprofit organizations, units of state or local government, and federally recognized tribal communities may apply. The deadline to apply for Challenge America grants is April 22.
