ATLANTA, GA, Mar. 03, 2019
The National Black Arts Festival (NBAF) is pleased to announce that it is a grantee of the 2019 grant awards announced by the National Endowment for the Arts. This announcement of more than $27 million in grants, supports the National Endowment for the Arts in continuing its efforts to provide all Americans with the
opportunity to participate in and experience the arts.
This fiscal year 2019 grants will reach all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. This is the first of two major grant announcements in the fiscal year 2019 and includes three of the agency’s funding categories: Art Works and Challenge America to support projects by nonprofit organizations, and Creative Writing Fellowships. Through these grants, the National Endowment for the Arts supports local economies and preserves American heritage while embracing new forms of creative expression.
“The arts enhance our communities and our lives, and we look forward to seeing these projects take place
throughout the country, giving Americans opportunities to learn, to create, to heal, and to celebrate,” said Mary
Anne Carter, acting chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.
