Project Types

Audience and Professional Development Projects: These projects focus on local and/or national activities designed to promote and develop practitioners of, and audiences for, the literary arts.

Projects may include but are not limited to:

We fund nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3), U.S. organizations; units of state or local government; or federally recognized tribal communities or tribes.

We fund projects only.

Budgetary Requirements:

Our grants cannot exceed 50% of the total cost of the project. All grants require a nonfederal cost share/match of at least 1 to 1. For example, if an organization receives a $10,000 grant, the total eligible project costs must be at least $20,000 and the organization must provide at least $10,000 toward the project from nonfederal sources.
