Ohio Arts Jobs Preservation Grants Applications

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) recognizes that the non-profit arts industry is an important sector of the economy. The National Endowment for the Arts is uniquely positioned to fund arts projects and activities that preserve jobs in the nonprofit arts sector threatened by declines in philanthropic and other support during the current economic downturn. As part of this important investment, the Arts Endowment is planning to expedite distribution of critical funds at the national, regional, state, and local levels for projects that focus on the preservation of jobs in the arts.

On the web page you will find the information and resources you need to apply for an Ohio Arts Jobs Preservation Grant award, including the OAC list of eligible applicants to the program, program guidelines, scoring criteria, FAQ, reporting requirements, and cash request instructions. Information will be added to the page as it becomes available, but guidelines, scoring criteria and the list of eligible applicants will be posted no later than April 17, 2009.
