Along with the rest of District government, CAH remains operational during the public health emergency. We are operating on a telework status and have made modifications to how some services are being provided, which are listed here. Today, we wanted to take a moment to share information for the arts community, as it relates to COVID-19 response and recovery efforts.
The recently enacted federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act includes an allocation of $75 million to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), designated to preserve jobs in the country’s arts and cultural sector and provide assistance to organizations forced to close due to the spread of COVID-19. Last week, the NEA began accepting applications for CARES Act grants from nonprofit arts organizations. Learn about this grant program at NEA’s website www.arts.gov.
