Nebraska: Signers for the Arts Grants

The Nebraska Arts Council (NAC) has a new grant program that increases the accessibility of arts events and programs by underwriting the addition of licensed American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters. Signers for the Arts Grants (SFA) provide nonmatching funds up to $250 for ASL interpreters for music, dance and theatre performances as well as art exhibitions, museum functions and other cultural programs. Eligible grant applicants are incorporated nonprofits, schools, religious groups and subdivisions of government agencies. NAC helps connect ASL interpreters with arts events by including a link on its web page for the SFA grants to the Nebraska Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, which has an interpreter-referral service. In awarding the SFA grants, NAC gives priority to underserved populations whose access to arts and culture is limited due to geography, economic conditions, ethnicity or disability. To find out more, contact NAC Heritage Arts/Accessibility Manager Deborah Bunting.
