NEA restructuring

Update from NEA Museum Program

Because of a 40% Congressional budget cut and a subsequent major
reduction in agency staff, the National Endowment for the Arts is
restructuring as of January 1996.  A single new guideline book,
replacing all existing ones, will be available early that month and
will cover the year 1996.  Only one application may be submitted per
institution to *one* of the four new categories in the guidelines.
Applicants must submit a postcard announcing their intention to
apply to a particular theme, 4 to 6 weeks in advance of the
application deadline.

The Arts Endowment will provide project support to organizations
through the four theme categories.  The agency will also support the
56 states and jurisdictional arts agencies and the six regional arts
organizations.  In addition, the Endowment will conduct several
leadership initiatives that support projects of national

Heritage and Preservation:  projects that honor, assist, and make
visible those artists and forms of artistic expression that are
rooted in and reflective of the many cultural groups that make up
our nation; projects that preserve our most significant artistic
accomplishments for future generations; and projects that conserve
important works of art.

Deadlines/Heritage & Preservation:
    Intent to Apply: February 5, 1996;
