The Creative Forces Community Engagement Grant is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in partnership with Mid-America Arts Alliance (M-AAA). This grant program aims to improve the health, well-being, and quality of life for military-connected populations through matching grants of up to $10,000 for emerging or up to $50,000 for advanced arts engagement projects that take place after July 1, 2023.
For the purpose of this grant program, trauma-exposed populations are defined to include active-duty service members, guardsmen, reservists, veterans, military and veteran families, caregivers, and health care workers providing care for military service members and veterans.
These grants are intended to support non-clinical arts engagement projects taking place in healthcare, community, or virtual settings. While these activities can be informed by medical knowledge, practice, or theory, support from this grant program cannot include direct involvement with medical research, clinical therapy, or treatment delivery, or involve Protected Health Information, including any associated with the Page 1 of 24 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Further, funds from this grant program shall not support studies that include systematic investigations, including research and development, testing, or evaluation; or research studies designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge. Examples include activities that require asking program participants to provide sensitive and/or confidential information about themselves, and/or that involve systematic studies to assess a program’s benefits for participants.
