Arts stimulus funds redux

Regarding NUVO's July 22 article about the recent release of information about the stimulus funds (Hoppe, "The Arts Stimulus Money"), I wanted to provide a bit of clarification. Through the National Endowment for the Arts, the grant guidelines for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stipulated that if a local arts agency was an official designee to reallocate funds (which the Arts Council is), we could apply for a maximum of $250,000. By the requirements of the NEA's grant program, we could only allocate a maximum of $200,000 to subgrantees. If awarded the full amount of $250,000, $50,000 was available for the local arts agency's staffing requirements. We are restricted from allocating more than $200,000 to subgranting activities. The Arts Council is proud to be one of only 14 local arts agencies in the country to be awarded the entire grant amount of $250,000. Additionally, we are pleased that we are able to bring $200,000 of federal stimulus funds directly to the arts in Indianapolis.
