NEA Our Town, FY2020

The Arts Endowment’s support of a project may start on July 1, 2020, or any time thereafter.

A grant period of up to two years is allowed.

An organization may submit as a lead applicant two applications to Our Town.

A partnering organization may serve as a partner on as many

applications as they like.

You may apply to other National Endowment for the Arts funding opportunities, including Art Works and Challenge America, in addition to Our Town.

In each case, the request must be for a distinctly different project, or a distinctly different phase of a project.

If you have applied to the NEA in the past and were not recommended for funding, you may apply again to any funding opportunity, including Our Town.

Program Description Our Town is the National Endowment for the Arts’ creative placemaking grants program.

Through project-based funding, we support projects that integrate arts, culture, and design activities into efforts that strengthen communities by advancing local economic, physical, and/or social outcomes.

Successful Our Town projects ultimately lay the groundwork for systemic changes that sustain the integration of arts, culture, and design into local strategies for strengthening communities.

These projects require a partnership between a local government entity and nonprofit organization, one of which must be a cultural organization; and should engage in partnership with other sectors (such as agriculture and food, economic development, education and youth, environment and energy, health, housing, public safety, transportation, and workforce development).

Matching grants range from $25,000 to $200,000, with a minimum cost share/match equal to the grant amount.

FY 2020 marks the 10 year anniversary of the Our Town program.

We are looking for projects that reflect a new and catalytic way of working, and demonstrate the potential for sustained support and recognition for arts, design, and cultural strategies as integral to every phase of community development.
