The Indiana Arts Commission, an IPA member, was approved for $1,112,000 in funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Fiscal Year 2022 Partnership Agreement to address identified state-level priorities.

These funds will support the arts in areas such as cultural tourism, community revitalization, economic development, education, and health and human services. 

“Through our work with state and regional partners, the National Endowment for the Arts can extend its impact, reaching even more communities throughout the nation, providing opportunities for all of us to live artful lives,” NEA Chair Maria Rosario Jackson, PhD, said. “The arts contribute to our individual well-being, the well-being of our communities, and to our local economies. The arts are also crucial to helping us make sense of our circumstances from different perspectives as we emerge from the pandemic and plan for a shared new normal informed by our examined experience.” 

Partnership Agreement funding awarded to the Indiana Arts Commission from the NEA will be utilized to positively impact the cultural, economic, and educational climate of Indiana through regranting and other programming in service of arts and creativity in the state.
