Strategy
The Fund for National Projects supports projects that:

Strengthen the national infrastructure of the professional nonprofit dance, jazz, presenting and/or theater fields; or
Improve conditions for the national community of performing artists in professional nonprofit dance, jazz and theater.
Grant Details
The Fund will award a total of up to $1 million in grants each year to support key national projects in the professional nonprofit dance, jazz, presenting and/or theatre fields. Grants range from $60,000 to $200,000 and cannot exceed 50 percent of a project’s total cost. In general, grant periods will be limited to a maximum of two years, although applicants may request longer support in extraordinary circumstances. Additional funds will be given to previous Fund for National Projects grantees in the Fund for National Projects Phase II Program.

National projects engage a broad national constituency, occur once (or periodically) rather than annually, and have the potential to significantly impact a field.

Organizations are encouraged to submit letters of inquiry for projects that strengthen the national infrastructure of the professional nonprofit dance, jazz, presenting and/or theater fields, or that improve conditions for the national community of performing artists in dance, jazz and theater, such as:

Research projects assessing the national health of professional nonprofit arts groups or of individual professional artists;
Special national convenings for entire professional nonprofit performing arts fields (beyond traditional national annual conferences);
Special projects that address unique circumstances that affect an entire professional nonprofit field.
Highest priority will be given to projects that improve the health of the Arts Program’s priority performing arts fields and do not duplicate ongoing efforts or existing services.
Eligibility

Single nonprofit organizations and consortia are both eligible to apply.

Application Process

The deadline to submit a letter of inquiry is February 24, 2017, and letters of inquiry must be submitted online. Full proposals are due approximately six weeks after receiving an invitation to submit.

Letters of inquiry should outline the project and articulate its impact on the professional nonprofit dance, jazz, presenting or theater field. Competitive proposals that demonstrate the potential for direct and significant impact on the national professional nonprofit dance, jazz, presenting and/or theater fields are reviewed by an advisory panel, which recommends the strongest applicants for funding based on the criteria for support outlined below.
