Funding & Recognition

Grants for Community-Wide Reading Programs

NEA Big Read supports organizations across the country in developing community-wide reading programs that encourage reading and participation by diverse audiences. These programs include activities such as author readings, book discussions, art exhibits, lectures, film series, music or dance events, theatrical performances, panel discussions, and other events and activities related to the community’s chosen book from the NEA Big Read library. Local education agencies, school districts, and state and regional education agencies are eligible to take part. Schools may participate as partners in projects for which another eligible organization applies. In addition to grant funds, organizations selected to participate in the NEA Big Read receive access to online training resources and opportunities, digital resources produced for their chosen book, and limited quantities of promotional materials.

Deadlines: January 31, 2017, for applications; award notifications will occur in April 2017, and organizations will conduct their NEA Big Read programming at any point between September and June 2017.
