WESTAF American Rescue Plan (ARP) Fund for Organizations


We are pleased to announce that the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Fund for Organizations will begin accepting applications on Thursday, July 1! Awards will be made to eligible arts and culture organizations throughout the 13-state WESTAF region (Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawai’i, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming), with at least one grant awarded in each state.

The program will prioritize organizations most at risk from the effects of the pandemic, with individual grant disbursements of around $50,000 each.

Aligning with the National Endowment for the Arts’ commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, and in furthering shared respect for the diverse beliefs and values of all individuals and groups, the program will focus on providing funding to organizations that serve and/or are led by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), as well as those that support the independence and lifelong inclusion of people with disabilities.
