Blog bite: NEA awards $3.4M to California nonprofits

A brief yet bountiful blog bite: The NEA announced today its first grant awards for the 2018 fiscal year—including a grand total of $3,363,000 for 132 California nonprofit organizations! The federal funds fall under two NEA grant categories, Art Works and Challenge America.

We’re happy to congratulate all of our state’s recipients, and we see a lot of familiar faces among them. Seventy, to be exact! More than half the organizations receiving ArtWorks and Challenge America grants are also California Arts Council grantees.
