The Challenge America grant offers support primarily to small and mid-sized organizations for projects that extend the reach of the arts to underserved populations -- those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability. The involvement of professionally trained, experienced artists and arts professionals is essential. Grants are available for professional arts programming and for projects that emphasize the potential of the arts in community development such as an event with a guest artist, promotion of community-wide arts activities and resources, or the development of a visual arts project through community engagement. Challenge America grants are for a fixed amount of $10,000 and require a minimum $10,000 match.
