Connecting Communities and Military
The Creative Forces Community Engagement Grant is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in partnership with Mid-America Arts Alliance (M-AAA). This grant program aims to improve the health, well-being, and quality of life for military service members and veterans exposed to trauma as well as their families and caregivers through experiences of art or art making.
Each year, M-AAA will award approximately thirty-five matching grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 for arts-based community engagement projects that engage targeted military-connected communities. These Creative Forces Community Engagement Grants are intended to support non-clinical arts engagement programs taking place in healthcare, community, or virtual settings. The grants will be awarded in two tiers, emerging and advanced, which reflect the capacity of the project at the time of the application. In FY23, the inaugural round of grants supported projects at 26 organizations totaling $750,385.
Application guidelines run below. For more resources, please visit the Creative Forces National Resource Center.
Mid-America Arts Alliance will only consider applications submitted by 11:59 p.m. CST on Thursday, January 19, 2023.
