When we released more details about our grant program scope and eligibility on April 1, we received several messages from groups that had not previously heard about, or fully realized the scope of, this opportunity. One of our goals is to achieve greater equity in funding art that reflects the full diversity of American culture, and the last thing we want to do is leave out eligible groups — some of whom have surely been impacted disproportionately by a long history of economic and racial segregation.
The deadline for new applicants is 11pm CT on Tuesday, April 13th. This new LOI window will not change the previously announced timing of the rest of our grant program.
