Grant Description

An organization may submit only one proposal under this program solicitation. This Cooperative Agreement may begin no earlier than December 1, 2016, and may extend for up to 12 months. Description The purpose of this Program Solicitation is to select an organization to assist the National Endowment for the Arts with the 2017 National Heritage Fellowships Awards program by coordinating a concert, ceremony and reception, awardee dinner, and associated events. Each year, the National Endowment for the Arts awards a limited number of lifetime honors to individuals in recognition of their outstanding contributions to our nationмs artistic heritage. One of these programs, the NEA National Heritage Fellowship Awards, pays tribute and draws public attention to the excellence and diversity of our nationмs folk and traditional arts. The one-time-only awards go to significant traditional artists from across the country in recognition of their contributions to a particular traditional art form and to the American public through their artistic work. Since 1982, new awardees have travelled to Washington, DC to receive our nationмs highest honor in this field in a public ceremony and perform in a concert. Through this Program Solicitation, the National Endowment for the Arts seeks a Cooperator to assist in the production and execution of the award programмs public events including bringing the recipients to Washington, DC and coordinating the various events surrounding the official presentation of the 2017 National Heritage Fellowship awards.
