    Funding Sources

    Federal Funding

    Three agencies provide most of the funding available to communities to promote the arts and humanities. These programs can be accessed in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) cultural affairs section at:

    1. The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is dedicated to supporting excellence in the arts, both new and established; bringing the arts to all Americans; and providing leadership in arts education. The NEA is the nation's largest annual funder of the arts in the country, including rural areas, inner cities, and military bases.

      The NEA publishes the NEA ARTS, a bimonthly newsletter. Each issue includes recent information on the NEA's national initiatives, sponsored programs, awards, grants, and a calendar of upcoming events.

      The National Endowment for the Arts
      1100 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
      Washington, DC 20506

    2. The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is dedicated to creating and sustaining a nation of learners by helping libraries and museums serve their communities. IMLS supports all types of museums, from art and history to science and zoos, and all types of libraries and archives, from public and academic to research and school.

      Institute of Museum and Library Services
      1100 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Room 510
      Washington, DC 20506

    3. National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) supports research, education, preservation, and public programs in the humanities. NEH is the largest funder of humanities programs in the country. According to the 1956 National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities Act, "The term 'humanities' includes, but is not limited to, the study of the following: language, both modern and classical; linguistics; literature; history; jurisprudence; philosophy; archaeology; comparative religion; ethics; the history, criticism and theory of the arts; those aspects of social sciences which have humanistic content and employ humanistic methods; and the study and application of the humanities to the human environment with particular attention to reflecting our diverse heritage, traditions, and history and to the relevance of the humanities to the current conditions of national life."

      The NEH publishes the Humanities, a bimonthly review of notable humanities programs.

      The NEH in partnership with the National Trust for the Humanities and Marco Polo Education Foundation sponsor EDSITEment, an online humanities resource from some of the world's great museums, libraries, cultural institutions, and universities.
