NEA Awards $70,000 in Grants to ACSO and 4 ACSO Members

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) announced over $84 million through 1,144 grants nationwide in the second round of its regular grant-making in fiscal year 2020.

Four ACSO organizational members as well as ACSO itself were awarded grants in the Art Works category, the NEA’s largest funding category that supports projects in 13 artistic disciplines and fields ranging from arts education to visual arts to music.

“These awards demonstrate the resilience of the arts in America, showcasing not only the creativity of their arts projects but the organizations’ agility in the face of a national health crisis,” said Mary Anne Carter, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. “We celebrate organizations like the Association of California Symphony Orchestras and its members for providing opportunities for learning and engagement through the arts in these times.”

"During this global health crisis, NEA funding is especially vital for orchestras who are unable to perform and face a loss of earned income in the coming year. NEA grants helps orchestras continue to operate and develop creative virtual programming that brings music to their communities," said Sarah Weber, ACSO's Executive Director.
