In February, the National Endowment for the Arts released its first funding announcement of FY 2019, which included funding to nine Utah organizations for arts projects. Earlier this month, the NEA released its second funding announcement, which included grants to 15 Utah organizations. The February round of funding totaled $250,000 to Utah groups; the more recent round of funding included a total of $1,135,200 for Utah organizations (including the NEA’s annual grant to the Utah Division of Arts & Museums).
“It’s so gratifying to know that Utah organizations have received this funding,” said Utah Division of Arts & Museums Director Victoria Panella Bourns. “We’re very proud of the state’s cultural community.”
