The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has awarded $50,000 to CAA as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The grant will support the preservation of jobs that are threatened by declines in philanthropic and other support during the current economic downturn.

CAA was among 631 nonprofit organizations, including numerous art museums and organizations nationwide, that received a total of nearly $29.8 million. To read the full list of grantees, please visit the NEA website.

Passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama in February 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is a $787 billion stimulus bill that provided $50 million to the NEA for distribution to arts groups.
