Six art museums, five music festivals, one opera house and one ballet ballet studio will receive funding through the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) this year.
These funds will be used to help fund the work of artists and cultural institutions across the country.
In 2017, the NEA will award $2.5 billion in grants to arts and cultural organizations across the United States, according to a news release from the agency.
Arts groups will receive up to $300,000 each.
The NEA also announced this week that the National Center for Arts Education, which administers the NEAs grant program, will provide $150,000 for “creative and experiential programs,” which include workshops and lectures.
The arts will receive a total of $3.5 million for the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
The National Endowments for the Humanities and Social Sciences, which oversees the NEAS grant program as well as other arts programs, will spend $1.5 to $2 million each year to support new projects in the arts.
The agency also announced in 2017 that the Arts Council of New York will receive $300 to $500,000 in additional funding this year, including a $25,000 matching grant for students interested in participating in a new art or culture program.
