NEA American Rescue Plan Relief Fund – Webinar Recording & Resources

On July 27th, NALAC hosted a webinar with the National Endowment for the Arts on the American Rescue Plan Grants to Organizations (ARP), with the goal of encouraging Latinx and culturally-specific organizations to apply for these relief funds. With over 200 participants, the webinar offered the most complete information about the application process and ended with an extensive Q&A. You can now access the recording of the webinar at this link: vimeo.com/580461521
