The National Endowment for the Arts has authorized its first round of support for the 2024 fiscal year, with over 1,000 grants totaling $32 million dollars being awarded to organizations from across 50 states, plus D.C. and Puerto Rico.
Grants will be presented to arts organizations nationwide in several categories, including Grants for Arts Projects, Challenge America, Research Grants in the Arts, and Research Labs, as well grants to individuals for Literature Fellowships, which include Creative Writing Fellowships in prose and fellowships to support translation projects.
Grants for Art Projects is the category that offers the most support to works of theatre and musical theatre, with designated subcategories of Theatre Grants and Musical Theatre Grants.
Among the theatre-affiliated recipients in the Grants for Arts category are Harvard's American Repertory Theatre ($40,000), NYC's Civilians Inc. ($50,000), and Princeton's McCarter Theatre Company ($40,000), among others.
National Endowment for the Arts Chair Maria Rosario Jackson said in a statement, “The NEA is pleased to announce these grants, all of which strengthen our nation’s arts sector in different ways. Whether it’s the creation of new art, opportunities for the public to participate and engage in the arts, or work to better understand the impact of the arts, these grants contribute to the well-being of individuals and communities, help meet the challenges of our time, and build towards a future in which all people can lead artful lives and reach their full potential.”
