National Endowment for the Arts--Awarding of Grants
B-322479, Sep 25, 2012
The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has established a program under 20 U.S.C. 954(g) to award grants to states to support projects and productions in the arts. A plan approved by the NEA Chairperson is a prerequisite to receiving a grant. In the event any particular state does not have a plan that has been approved by the Chairperson, NEA may use appropriations that might otherwise have been used for a grant to that state to provide grant funding to other states or regional groups in accordance with the order of priorities set forth in section 954(g).
