First Nations established the Native Arts Initiative (NAI) (formerly called the Native Arts Capacity Building Initiative) in 2014 with the goal of stimulating long-term perpetuation, proliferation and revitalization of artistic and cultural assets in Native communities. The NAI is working to achieve this by strengthening the enabling environments in which Native-controlled nonprofit organizations and tribal programs operate to support emerging and established Native artists and sustain traditional Native arts in their communities.
Under the NAI, First Nations provides selected grantees with organizational and programmatic resources, including direct grants and technical assistance and training. Since 2014, First Nations has awarded more than $1 million in grant funds to a variety of eligible Native-controlled nonprofit organizations and tribal government programs under the NAI.
First Nations is pleased to announce this 2017 NAI request for proposals (RFP). Native-controlled nonprofits and tribal government programs located in one of the following regions are eligible to apply for an NAI Supporting Native Arts Grant as part of this current funding cycle:
During this funding cycle, First Nations will distribute approximately 15 Supporting Native Arts Grants of up to $32,000 each.
Selected Native-controlled nonprofit organizations and tribal government programs must have existing program initiatives in place supporting Native artists and the field of traditional Native arts, as well as a demonstrated commitment to increasing the intergenerational transfer of knowledge of traditional Native artistic practices and perpetuation and proliferation of traditional Native arts.
