Application Restrictions

  • Generally, an organization is limited to one application per year under the Grants for Arts Projects OR the Challenge America categories. There are limited exceptions for parent organizations, such as universities or cultural complexes that apply on behalf of separately identifiable and independent components, and certain Media Arts projects.
  • You may apply to other National Endowment for the Arts funding opportunities, including Our Town and Research: Grants in the Arts, in addition to Grants for Arts Projects or Challenge America. In each case, the request must be for a distinctly different project.
