St Pete Arts Alliance Receives NEA Grant

We’re grateful that the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is the only nonprofit in Pinellas County to receive an NEA Grant in their recent round of 2019 funding.

The Arts Alliance is honored to receive a $15,000 ArtWorks grant for showcasing St. Pete Performs this fall, making it possible for us to feature artists working in our area in theatre, dance, music and film.

Art Works is the Arts Endowment’s principal grantmaking program. The agency received 1,605 Art Works applications for this round of grantmaking, and will award 972 grants in this category.

National Endowment for the Arts Acting Chair Mary Anne Carter has approved more than $27 million in grants as part of the Arts Endowment’s first major funding announcement for fiscal year 2019.

“The arts enhance our communities and our lives, and we look forward to seeing these projects take place throughout the country, giving Americans opportunities to learn, to create, to heal and to celebrate,” she affirms.
