Florida Nonprofits Receive $1.2 Million in NEA Funding

The National Endowment for the Arts announced that in their most recent round of funding, Florida organizations will receive grants totaling more than $1.2 million dollars. In addition to the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs state partnership grant, seventeen Florida nonprofits will receive grants ranging from $10,000 to $60,000.

NEA Acting Chairman Shigekawa said, "Working in partnership with the state and regional arts organizations is a key element of the NEA’s work in ensuring the arts are available to all. These organizations help to extend the NEA’s reach to thousands of communities across the country, while also carrying out innovative programming in such areas as education, creative placemaking, and cultural tourism.”
