New Mexico: Colleges, Universities and Government Entities Grants

New Mexico is one of the geographically largest states in the country, and one-third of its population lives in a rural area. To meet the needs of the many people who live far from the state’s cities and cultural centers, New Mexico Arts (NMA) offers funding to colleges and universities, local and county government agencies, and tribal governments for arts programming that serves the larger community. The goal of its Colleges, Universities and Government Entities Grants program is to enable these non-arts institutions to become key providers of arts services in areas lacking sufficient cultural and creative opportunities for residents. Funding is available for projects in the performing arts, visual arts, literary arts and media arts. Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary projects are also eligible. Grants can be used for programming of single events or entire seasons as well as for salary assistance and general operating support. Grantee projects must be marketed and accessible to the general public, and they may not serve the primary purpose of meeting educational requirements.
