Folk & Traditional Arts Infrastructure Initiative 



For more than 20 years, the Arts Endowment has 
helped to create and support a network of folk & tra- 
ditional arts programs. Many of these programs are 
housed in state arts agencies, in multi-state regional 
organizations, and in other organizations that work 
in partnership with state arts agencies. This initia- 
tive advances the Arts Endowment's goal to honor, 
assist, encourage, and present those artists and forms 
of artistic expression and practice that reflect the 
many cultural traditions that make up our nation by 
strengthening the state and regional infrastructure of 
support for the folk & traditional arts. For the pur- 
poses of these guidelines, the term infrastructure 
refers to stable, professionally-directed programs 
that are responsive to a diverse folk & traditional 
arts heritage. 

Priority will be given to those projects with: 1) 
the greatest impact in expanding or strengthening a 
state or region's infrastructure of support for the folk 
& traditional arts, and 2) the potential for long-term 
artistic impact. 

Projects with high impact might include, but are 
not limited to: 

■ Professional folk arts positions in support of the 
folk & traditional arts. Such positions should have the 
potential to become self-sustaining within three years. 

■ The creation of long-term organizational and com- 
munity partnerships that are based in the folk & tra- 
ditional arts. 

■ Discovery research to identify and document 
underserved folk & traditional artists and arts. 

■ Apprenticeship programs. 

■ Technical assistance to traditional artists and folk 

arts organizations. „,,.,«. T ^ «., 

■ For the Local Cultures Infrastructure Pilot 

■ Festivals, exhibitions, new technology, and other Initiative, a local arts agency or nonprofit tax- 
presentations of folk & traditional artists and their exempt community-based cultural organization that 
work. supports the folk & traditional arts on a local basis.

INITIATIVE 

For FY 2002, the Folk & Traditional Arts Infra- 
structure Initiative will support up to 12 start-up 
folk arts positions at local arts agencies and com- 
munity-based cultural organizations. Priority will be 
given to professional folk arts positions that address 
the needs of previously underserved geographic or 
cultural communities. Positions should have the 
potential to become self-sustaining within three 
years. Grant funds may not be used to assume the 
costs of existing positions. 

Organizations that are interested in applying for 
this pilot initiative must consult with the Folk & 
Traditional Arts staff (202/682-5678 or 682-5726) 
prior to August 31, 2001.

Instructions for the Project Budget Form 



Organizations may not receive grants from more than one Arts 
Endowment category for the same expenses. Support is not 
available to assume the costs of activities that currently are 
supported with federal Partnership Agreements funds, state 
funds, or other non-federal funds. Only state arts agencies, their 
regional arts organizations, and local arts agencies that are 
publicly-designated, nonprofit tax-exempt organizations are 
allowed by the Endowment's current legislation to subgrant or 
regrant funds that are awarded under this Initiative. 

Your Project Budget should reflect only those costs that will 
be incurred during the "Period of Support" that you indicate on 
page 8; do not include costs incurred before or after those dates. 
Round all numbers to the nearest $100. Combine like costs if 
necessary to making rounding more realistic. 

INCOME 

i. AMOUNT REQUESTED FROM THE ARTS ENDOW- 
MENT: Indicate the amount that you are requesting from the Arts 
Endowment. 

2. TOTAL MATCH FOR THIS PROJECT: The Arts Endow- 
ment requires each applicant to obtain at least half the total cost 
of each project from non-federal sources. Matches of more than 
dollar for dollar are encouraged. Be as specific as possible. Aster- 
isk (*) those funds that are committed or secured. 

Cash match refers to the cash donations (including items or 
services that are provided by the applicant organization), grants, 
and revenues that are expected or received for this project. Do not 
include any Arts Endowment or other federal grants that are antic- 
ipated or received. Identify sources. 



Donated space, supplies, volunteer services (also known as 
in-kind contributions) are goods and services that are donated by 
individuals or organizations other than the applicant. To qualify 
as matching resources, these same items also must be listed in 
the project budget as direct costs. The dollar value of these non- 
cash donations should be calculated at their verifiable fair-market 
value. Identify sources. Reminder: Proper documentation must be 
maintained for all items noted as "in-kind." 



EXPENSES 

DIRECT COSTS are those that are identified specifically with 
the project. 

i. DIRECT COSTS: Salaries and wages cover compensation 
for personnel, administrative and artistic, who are paid on a salary 
basis. (Funds for contractual personnel and compensation for 
artists who are paid on a fee basis should be included in "3. Other 
expenses," and not here.) Indicate the title and/or type of person- 
nel, the number of personnel, the annual or average salary range, 
and the percentage of time that will be devoted to the project. List 
key staff positions, and combine similar functions. Where appro- 
priate, use ranges. (See example below.) 

Salaries and wages for performers and related or supporting 
personnel must be estimated at rates no less than the prevailing 
minimum compensation as required by the Department of Labor 
Regulations. (See "Legal Requirements" on page 21.) Salaries and 
wages that are incurred in connection with fund raising are not 
allowable project expenses; do not include them in your budget. 

Fringe benefits are those costs other than wages or salary that 
are attributable to an employee, as in the form of pension, insur- 
ance, etc. They may be included here only if they are not included 
as indirect costs.

pretation, closed or open captioning, large-print brochures/label- 
ing, telephone, photocopying, postage, supplies and materials, 
publication, distribution, translation, transportation of items other 
than personnel, rental of space or equipment, and other project- 
specific costs. List artist compensation here if artists are paid 
on a fee basis. 

Television broadcast projects and educational/interpretive 
videos must be closed or open captioned. Applicants should check 
with captioning organizations for an estimate. 

If you intend to purchase any equipment that costs $5,000 
or more per item and that has an estimated useful life of more 
than one year, you must identify that item here and attach a 
written justification. 

Group similar items together on a single line, with only one 
total cost. List consultant and artist fees, honoraria, or contracts 
for professional services on consecutive lines; do not scatter them 
throughout the list. Specify the number of persons and the appli- 
cable fee, rate, or amount of each. You may attach additional 
sheet(s) if necessary. (See example below.) 



Do not include fund raising, entertainment or hospitality activi- 
ties, fines and penalties, bad debt costs, deficit reduction, cash 
reserves or endowments, lobbying, marketing expenses that are 
not directly related to the project, contingencies, miscellaneous, 
or costs incurred before the beginning of the official grant period. 

4. TOTAL DIRECT COSTS is the total of all direct cost items 
listed in "1. Salaries and wages," "2. Travel," and "3. Other 
expenses." 

5. INDIRECT COSTS are overhead or administrative costs that 
are not readily identifiable with a specific project. In order to 
assign these costs to a particular project, an indirect cost rate may 
be used provided you have negotiated, or will negotiate before the 
end of the grant period, such a rate with the Arts Endowment or 
another federal agency. You do not need to include indirect costs 
to apply to or to receive a grant from the Endowment. Adminis- 
trative costs may be assigned as direct costs under "3. Other 
expenses" if you do not wish to use indirect costs, or if you do not 
have or intend to negotiate an indirect cost rate. If you are not 
applying with an indirect cost rate, leave this section blank. If you 
are applying with an indirect cost rate, attach a copy of your cur- 
rent negotiated agreement. 

For guidance on how to prepare an indirect cost rate proposal, 
contact the Office of Inspector General, Room 601, National 
Endowment for the Arts, Nancy Hanks Center, 1 100 Pennsylva- 
nia Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20506-0001 (202/682-5402). 

6. TOTAL PROJECT COSTS is the total of "4. Total direct 
costs," and, if applicable, "5. Indirect costs." NOTE: "1. Amount 
requested from the Arts Endowment" plus "2. Total match for this 
project" must equal the "Total project costs." Your project bud- 
get should not equal your organization's entire operating budget.

Instructions for the Work Sample Index Form 



List and describe the work samples that you are submitting in the 
order in which you want them reviewed. 



VIDEO CASSETTES: Tapes must be 1/2 inch VHS or 3/4 inch 
cassette, recorded at standard play speed. 



HOW TO SUBMIT WORK SAMPLES 

Work samples are crucial for evaluating the artistic quality of 
your project. Please take the time to select samples that commu- 
nicate effectively the range and quality of your proposal. 

Panelists generally spend no more than three to five min- 
utes on the work sample(s) for each application. Organize and 
cue your submission(s) accordingly. Please be aware that the 
entire sample (not just the selected segment) is considered a part 
of the application package and may be reviewed. 

Work samples generally will not be returned. The Arts 
Endowment will attempt to return them when the applicant speci- 
fically requests that we do so. Do not submit a return envelope 
with your work samples. The Endowment cannot be responsible 
for any loss or damage. 

ALL WORK SAMPLES 

Label each sample clearly with the name of the applicant and the 
corresponding Work Sample letter from the Work Sample Index. 
If possible, label both the cassette or disc, and its container. If you 
are submitting slides, see the instructions below. 

SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS FOR CERTAIN 
TYPES OF WORK SAMPLES 



AUDIO AND VIDEO CASSETTES: List each cassette as one 
work sample on the Work Sample Index form. Place the selec- 
tion^) in priority order, with those that you would most like 
reviewed at the beginning of the tape. Indicate the accumulated 
elapsed real time of each. For example, starting at the beginning 
of a 15-minute tape, Selection 1 would be indicated as o'oo". If 
five minutes elapse from the beginning of the tape to where the sec- 
ond selection starts, Selection 2 would be indicated as 5'oo", etc. 

AUDIO CASSETTES: Work may be submitted on an audio cas- 
sette or on DAT (digital audiotape). Use high bias chrome or 
metal tapes; do not use voice quality tapes unless you are apply- 
ing for a spoken-word project. Note on the cassette whether or not 
you have used a noise reduction system and indicate what kind. 
Record works on one side only. For DATs, program a separate 
track for each selection on the tape. 



COMPACT DISCS: List each CD as one work sample on the 
Work Sample Index form. Indicate the track number(s) that you 
want reviewed in priority order. 

CD-ROMs: List each CD-ROM as one work sample on the 
Work Sample Index form. Indicate the files(s) that you want 
reviewed in priority order. Include instructions on how to open 
the files. 

SLIDES: Slides must be 35 mm and suitable for carousel pro- 
jection. Do not submit glass slides or use masking tape or other 
thick tape to label slides. Submit slides as follows: 

■ Number each slide. 

■ Place an ink dot on the front bottom left of each slide to guar- 
antee that it is projected correctly. 

■ Place the slides in a 9 inch by 1 1 inch clear plastic file sheet. 

■ List your set of slides as one work sample on the Work 
Sample Index form. Attach to the Work Sample Index a num- 
bered list of the individual slides. Be sure that the numbers on 
your list correspond to the numbers on each slide. Provide the fol- 
lowing information, as applicable, about each slide:

The applicant certifies that it is not delinquent in the 
repayment of any federal debt. Examples of relevant 
debt include delinquent payroll or other taxes, audit

4. The Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (41 

U.S.C. 701 et seq. and 45 C.F.R. pt. 1 154) requires 
grantee organizations, within 30 days of receiving a 
grant, to make a continuing, good faith effort to 
maintain a drug-free workplace through implemen- 
tation of the following: 



- Publish a statement notifying employees that 
the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispens- 
ing, possession, or use of a controlled substance 
is prohibited in the grantee's workplace, and 
specifying the actions that will be taken against 
employees for violation of the prohibition. (For 
the purposes of this Act, alcohol is not considered 
a controlled substance.) The grantee shall give a 
copy of the statement to each employee who will 
be involved in grant- supported activities and 
notify those employees that they are expected to 
abide by the statement. For the purposes of this 
law, "employees" include consultants and tem- 
porary personnel (but not volunteers), who are 
directly engaged in work under the grant and 
who are on the grantee's payroll. The grantee 
should maintain on file the address of each site 
where work is performed under the grant. 

- Establish a drug-free awareness program that 
will inform employees about the dangers of drug 
abuse in the workplace, the grantee's policy of 
maintaining a drug-free workplace, any available 
drug counseling, rehabilitation, and employee 
assistance programs, and the penalties that might 
be imposed for workplace drug abuse violations. 
Employees should be informed that any convic- 
tion for a violation of a criminal drug statute that 
occurs in the workplace must be reported to the 
employer, in writing, no later than five calendar 
days after such a conviction. The grantee, in turn, 
must notify the Arts Endowment's Grants & 
Contracts Officer, in writing, within ten calendar 
days of receiving such notice from its employee. 
The grantee's notice to the Arts Endowment 
must include the convicted individual's position 
title and the number(s) of each affected grant. 

- Within 30 calendar days of receiving notice of 
an employee's criminal drug conviction, a 
grantee should take appropriate personnel action 
against the convicted employee, up to and 
including termination, consistent with the 
requirements of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 



22 



FOLK & TRADITIONAL ARTS INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATIVE - FY 2002 



as amended; or require the employee to partici- 
pate satisfactorily in a drug abuse assistance or 
rehabilitation program that has been approved for 
such purposes by a federal, state, or local health, 
law enforcement, or other appropriate agency. 

5. The Native American Graves Protection and 
Repatriation Act of 1990 (25 U.S.C. 3001 et seq.) 
which applies to any organization which controls or 
possesses Native American human remains and 
associated funerary objects, and which receives fed- 
eral funding, even for a purpose unrelated to the Act. 

Other 

If your project, including the planning stage, has 
environmental implications (e.g., an arts festival in 
a park or the commissioning and installation of an 
outdoor sculpture), you may be requested to provide 
information to the Arts Endowment in response to 
specific questions in accordance with the National 
Environmental Policy Act. 

If your project includes the planning for major 
renovation of any structure that is eligible for or on 
the National Register of Historic Places you may be 
asked to provide additional information on your pro- 
ject to ensure compliance with the National Historic 
Preservation Act. This law also applies to planning 
for new construction that would affect historic prop- 
erties. 



REPORTING BURDEN 

The public reporting burden for this collection of 
information is estimated to average 15 hours per 
response, including the time for reviewing instruc- 
tions, searching existing data sources, gathering and 
maintaining the data needed, and completing and 
reviewing the collection of information. The Arts 
Endowment welcomes any suggestions that you 
might have on improving the guidelines and making 
them as easy to use as possible. Send comments 
regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect 
of this collection of information, including sugges- 
tions for reducing this burden, to: Office of Guide- 
lines & Panel Operations, Room 516, National 
Endowment for the Arts, Nancy Hanks Center, 1 100 
Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC
