Using the spreadsheet template provided below, report your organization’s street address (not a P.O. Box) as your Primary Project Location.

Enter additional U.S. locations where significant project activity took place. Please note that activities reported must:

  • occur within your approved period of performance
  • correspond to the approved project description
  • be supported by the NEA and matching funds, as reported on your Federal Financial Report

Significant project activities might include (but are not limited to) creation of artwork, festivals, concerts, performances, readings, classes, lectures, demonstrations, workshops, symposiums, conferences, exhibitions, film screenings, school or community residencies, artwork conservation, urban planning/design, and publishing.

If an activity took place at the same location multiple times, please select the first month of activity. Each location need only be entered once.

Before proceeding, please read the instructions for completing the GEO spreadsheet (pdf).
