We use a staggered, multi-year review for National Services. For FY 2023 the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies will complete an off-year application.

Applications must be submitted electronically through, the federal government’s online application system. The system must receive your validated application no later than 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on October 7, 2022. See "How to Apply" for further information.

In the event of a major emergency (e.g., a hurricane) or technological failure, the National Endowment for the Arts Chair may adjust application deadlines for affected applicants. If a deadline is extended for any reason, an announcement will be posted on our website.

Awards will support activities that are scheduled to begin on July 1, 2023, or any time thereafter.

Following the notification of funding offers (anticipated to be April 2023), all applicants must complete and submit a Partnership Agreement Budget for NEA review. Instructions and deadlines will be provided with the notification of funding.
