NEFA Invites Applications for New England States Touring Grants

The New England Foundation for the Arts is accepting applications from performing arts presenters for its New England States Touring grant program.

The program is designed to support presentations by New England-based performing artists outside a presenter’s state. Grants are available in amounts of up to 50 percent of the artists' fees and typically range from $400 to $4,000. Requests below $400 will not be accepted. Artists' fees may include expenses associated with the creation of new work, travel, and per diem.

To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, school, federally-recognized Indian tribal government, or unit of state or local government. (Nonprofit organizations do not have to be an arts organizations. Organizations that do not have a federal tax identification number may apply if part of an official government agency.) In addition, applicant organizations must be based in New England (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont)

Applications must be received no later than December 3 for tours beginning on or after March 1, 2019.
