Grant Program Description:
Creative Forces is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the U. S. Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs and state and local arts agencies.
Creative Forces places creative arts therapies at the core of patient-centered care
in military and veteran hospitals across the country, including a telehealth program for patients in rural and remote areas.
The initiative seeks to improve the health, wellness, and quality of life for military and veteran populations exposed to trauma, as well as their families and caregivers.
Administrative support for the initiative is provided by Americans for the Arts.
The purpose of this Program Solicitation is to select an organization (Cooperator) to design and administer Phase One of the Creative Forces Community Arts Engagement Subgranting Program (the Subgranting Program).
