The National Endowment for the Arts, in partnership with Mid-America Arts Alliance, is pleased to launch a new grant program as part of Creative Forces®: NEA Military Healing Arts Network. The Creative Forces Community Engagement Grants will support community-based arts programming for military-connected populations, providing opportunities for creative expression while building connections and improving resiliency. An NEA initiative in partnership with the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, Creative Forces seeks to improve the health, well-being, and quality of life through art for military and veteran populations exposed to trauma, as well as their families and caregivers.
The deadline to apply for these grants is December 15, 2021. For application guidelines and more information, visit maaa.org/creativeforces.
