This call for applications comes from the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures:

Launched in 2005 by the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures with major support from the Ford Foundation, the NALAC Fund for the Arts provides a variety of grants to assist US-based Latino artists and arts organizations in the development, creation, presentation and sustainability of artistic excellence, as well as the opportunity to participate in activities that contribute to professional and organizational growth.

The NFA is a national grant program open to US-based Latino working artists, ensembles and Latino arts organizations that demonstrate artistic excellence in pursuit of social justice through the arts. To date, the NFA has awarded over one million dollars to a diverse range of artists and organizations representing every discipline and region of the country. Applying to the NFA is a benefit of NALAC Membership.


New changes to the application format are being introduced in 2015 to make the process simpler, faster and meet the needs of the Latino arts and culture artists and organizations.

Phase 1 Application: Under the new 2015 approach, all applicants will complete a simplified online Profile, Project Overview and Statement of Intent by the deadline of Thursday, February 19, 2015. No additional materials will need to be uploaded as a part of this initial Phase 1.
