Program Solicitation: Local Arts Agencies National Cohort Program

Proposal Receipt Deadline: August 6, 2024 by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time

To further strengthen the LAA field, the NEA is launching the Local Arts Agencies National Cohort Program (LAANCP). The NEA’s primary goals for this program are: 1) to build and strengthen a network of LAAs throughout the country and facilitate a multi-dimensional learning community for LAA leaders to exchange strategies and tools to respond to the field’s trends and learn from peers and the field’s experts; and 2) to offer resources and other assistance to LAAs based on best practices in the field. To these ends, the NEA is currently managing a two-part research study about the LAA field. We expect early study findings to inform the work of the LAANCP initiative.

The NEA seeks a Cooperator to manage this new initiative, providing services such as dedicated coaching, virtual programming, access to on-demand resources, in-person convenings, networking, and peer learning activities.
