Furthering its mission to support the nonprofit arts industry, the Nevada Arts Council (NAC) will award nearly $400,000 in emergency relief grants funded by the CARES Act through the National Endowment for the Arts.

These noncompetitive, nonmatching grants will be awarded in amounts from $1,000 to $10,000 based on need and in the order they’re received. The application window opens June 1 and closes June 15.

At a May board meeting, the Nevada Arts Council Board approved $291,000 to be granted to the agency’s 50 operational grant recipients, and $100,750 in first-come, first-served funding for other arts and cultural organizations not already NAC grant recipients.

CARES Act grants must be used for salary support, artists fees or contractual personnel, or facilities costs such as rent and utilities and may not be used for capital improvements, debt reduction, or re-granting.
