Fall for the Book to Receive $10,000 Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts

National Endowment for the Arts Acting Chairman Mary Anne Carter has approved more than $80 million in grants as part of the Arts Endowment’s second major funding announcement for fiscal year 2019.  Included in this announcement is an Art Works grant of $10,000 to Fall for the Book, Inc. to support the Fall for the Book literary festival. Art Works is the Arts Endowment’s principal grantmaking program. The agency received 1,592 Art Works applications for this round of grantmaking, and will award 977 grants in this category.

“These awards, reaching every corner of the United States, are a testament to the artistic richness and diversity in our country,” said Mary Anne Carter, acting chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. “Organizations such as Fall for the Book, Inc. are giving people in their community the opportunity to learn, create, and be inspired.”

Fall for the Book is grateful for this recognition and support from the NEA. This grant helps us keep the festival free and open to the public, allows us to give financial support to writers who otherwise might not be able to travel to attend the festival, and ensures we can continue to offer quality literary arts events to our community.
