NASAA Announces $1.46 Million in Grants to Advance Creative Aging

March 4, 2021

In collaboration with Aroha Philanthropies, the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies (NASAA) has announced the award of $1,457,000 in grant funding to 36 state and jurisdictional arts agencies to advance creative aging. Part of NASAA’s Leveraging State Investments in Creative Aging initiative, these grants will expand opportunities for creative aging across the nation, facilitating lifelong learning, joy, social engagement and improved well-being for older adults.

Nineteen of the 36 state arts agencies included consulting, professional development, and program implementation services from Lifetime Arts in their proposals. Lifetime Arts will guide the agencies as they leverage existing state partnerships and forge new ones; develop responsive programming (i.e., veterans in Idaho); form and foster new communities of practice (New Jersey); and train a workforce of hundreds of teaching artists nationwide to develop safe, effective, meaningful, socially engaging, and sustainable programming for older adults.
