WASHINGTON, DC.- National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Rocco Landesman today announced the NEA's latest round of funding for fiscal year 2010 in the categories of Access to Artistic Excellence, Learning in the Arts, Arts on Radio and Television, and Partnership Agreements (State and Regional). The Arts Endowment will distribute $97,632,100 through 1,323 grants to nonprofit national, regional, state, and local organizations nationwide.

Chairman Landesman said, "Everywhere I have traveled over the past 9 months, I have been encouraged by the resilience and adaptability of our arts organizations, as they strive to fulfill their missions in the midst of a challenging economy. I've learned that a thriving arts sector brings with it economic and cultural vitality that helps drive community sustainability. These NEA grants will help sustain art work and keep it working for the organization, its community, and the nation."
