U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., announced Jan. 27 the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is accepting applications for funding to support small and mid-sized community based arts programs.

"West Virginia has an incredibly rich and unique arts tradition, of which I am very proud," Rahall said. "Our state's music and visual arts inspire our people, as they inspired and lifted up past generations of West Virginians, to do great things and overcome tremendous obstacles.

"These Federal grants are an excellent opportunity to engage and develop new talent and share our State's culture and history with the world."

NEA Grants for Arts Projects funding is available in two categories: Art Works and Challenge America Fast-Track. 

Art Works grants range from $10,000 to $100,000 and cover a broad range of projects, including commissions, residencies, rehearsals, workshops, performances, exhibitions, publications, festivals, training programs and literature fellowships.  Depending on the type of project in the application, the Art Works deadline is either Feb. 20, 2014 or July 24, 2014.

Challenge America Fast-Track (CAFT) program supports projects from primarily small and mid-sized arts organizations that extend the reach of the arts to underserved audiences. CAFT grants are all $10,000, with the deadline for applications May 8, 2014.

Eligible organizations can access application guidelines on the FY 2015 Grants for Arts Projects at http://arts.gov/grants/organizations-apply.
