Grants for Arts Projects (GAP) is the NEA’s largest grant program for organizations, providing expansive funding opportunities for communities across the nation in a wide range of artistic disciplines. Through project-based funding, the program supports opportunities for public engagement with the arts and arts education, for the integration of the arts with strategies promoting the health and well-being of people and communities, and for the improvement of overall capacity and capabilities within the arts sector.
Application deadlines are February 9 and July 6, 2023, for projects taking place beginning in 2024. Please note, the February deadline is the only opportunity to apply for Design funding in 2023. Please also note that the guidelines have been updated from previous years, with some different questions, character counts, etc.
