In the past month, we have received an increased number of requests for grants to help fund dance studios and dance education, both for youth and adults. We are happy to share some grants available to fund these areas. We also want to describe how these subjects can be funded by grants using a variety of themes. It can help to apply for grants that focus on the various different types of outcomes your program provides. This approach works not just for dancing programs, but for most any area. Examples of various themes applied to dance funding appear below.
In helping municipalities set priorities among the constant barrage of requests from the community--infrastructure, better roads, water systems,safey, recreation and leisurem and many more--it can help to know what kinds of funding are available. Toward that end, check out the grants below, some with September deadlines, as well as some information about an ongoing grant program that may be helpful for future planning.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is one of the largest funders of humanity programs in the United States. This independent federal agency traditionally has awarded grants to museums, libraries, colleges, universities, media outlets, and more.
