NEA awards nearly $854K to Indiana arts groups

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — The National Endowment for the Arts has awarded nearly $854,000 to Indiana arts groups, with most of that money going to the Indiana Arts Commission.

The funding announced last week was among nearly $75 million in grants awarded to nonprofit arts groups nationwide. Indiana's funding includes about $729,000 for the Indiana Arts Commission, a statewide arts advocacy group.

Cathedral Arts in Indianapolis received $10,000 for its International Violin Competition, while another $10,000 was awarded to the American Pianists Association.

That Indianapolis-based group will use the funding for its concerto curriculum arts education and community outreach program.

Indiana University in Bloomington received $20,000 to support an exit study of the school's seniors that's part of a study looking at the relationship between undergraduates' arts or non-arts training and their workforce skills.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?
