National Council on the Arts C^K. National Endowment for the Arts 



WASHINGTON, D.C. 20506 



BACKGROUND: 

NATIONAL COUNCIL ON THE ARTS, NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS 



The National Endowment for the Arts , a component of the National 
Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities, is an independent federal 
government agency created by Congress on September 29, 1965 to provide 
encouragement and financial assistance for the arts in America. 

The National Council on the Arts , established by Congress on Sept- 
ember 3, 1964 and later made the advisory body to the National Endowment, 
is composed of 26 private citizen experts in the arts appointed by the 
President of the United States to six-year terms. 

The Council meets several times a year to advise the Endowment on 
how to expend its funds, which are appropriated annually by the Congress. 
By law, the Chairman of the National Council on the Arts is also Chairman 
of the National Endowment for the Arts. 

The Endowment's primary means of assisting the arts is through 
grant-making. Grants to organizations, with some exceptions, must be 
matched at least dollar for dollar with non- federal funds; grants to 
individuals carry no matching provision. In making grants, the Endow- 
ment is assisted formally by the expertise of the members of the National 
Council on the Arts, by outside panels in the various fields, and by a 
professional staff. Additional advice and assistance are continually 
provided, on an informal basis, through Chairman's and staff's meetings 
and discussions with artists and cultural leaders across the country. 

Congress appropriates federal funds to the Endowment in the following 
categories: 

National Program Funds : this money is directly available to the 
Endowment for grants to artists and arts organizations across 
the country. 

Federal-State Partnership Funds : this money is available to the 
Endowment for the specific use of official State arts councils 
for programs within their own States or regions. 

"The Treasury Fund" : this money is available from the U.S. 
Treasury only when donations are received by the Endowment, at 
which time this "Fund" matches the donations dollar for dollar. 
The doubled amounts are then granted by the Endowment much the 
same way National Program Funds are spent.

Additionally, in Fiscal* 1969 and 1970, the U. S. Office of Education 
transferred funds to the National Endowment for the Arts for pilot pro- 
grams placing professional artists in elementary and secondary schools.

ment's existence follows:

FEDERAL- STATE PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM 



Fiscal 1967 through Fiscal 1970 



The Federal-State Partnership Program was authorized to begin in Fiscal 
1967 by the National Foundation on the Arts and the Hijmanities Act of 
1965 as a continuing program within the National Endowment for the Arts . 
Funds appropriated by the Congress for this program were divided equally 
(with the exception of the first year, when small planning grants and/ 
or' larger programming grants were authorized) and made available by the 
Endowment to the official arts coimcils of the 50 States and five 
special jurisdictions (American Samoa, District of Columbia, Guam, 
Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands), The arts councils, in turn, 
matched Endowment funds on at least a dollar-for-dollar basis with 
non- federal monies, as required by the legislation. 

Two million dollars were appropriated for matching grants to the States 
during each of the Fiscal Years 1967 and 1968. In Fiscal 1969, the 
appropriation was reduced to $1.7 million, but was restored to the $2 
million level in Fiscal 1970, During this four-year period. State 
legislatures' appropriations for the arts increased steadily from $4.8 
million in 1967 to $6.7 million in 1968, $6.9 million in 1969, and 
$7.6 million in 1970. Private contributions also increased 
dramatically during this period, with the result that many States provide 
$3 to $4 dollars for every federal dollar. 

The councils have done an expert job of surveying their cultural 
resources and developing imaginative programs to serve their communities . 
Projects administered by the councils range from a travelling 
"artrain" to exciting inner city projects; from "mini-grants" for gifted 
individuals to a major outdoor theatrical production reflecting the local 
culture of the region; from a museum for the blind to a series of 
writers' workshops. In recent years, the councils have increasingly 
joined together to conduct regional programming benefitting large sections 
of the population. 

Thousands of projects have been carried out under this program, involving 
all art forms, with major empahasis on bringing performances and exhibi- 
tions to smaller communities in the States, The Federal-State Partner- 
ship Program has thus afforded to millions of American citizens their 
first opportunity to participate in the arts.
