Grants to New Mexico public school districts and charter schools for fine arts programming in elementary schools. Funding is intended to offer school districts the opportunity to involve pupils in visual arts, theater, dance, and music programs. The goal of the grant program is to promote cognitive and affective development through student engagement with the arts.

Program goals will be achieved by:

  • Focusing on a variety of learning styles and engaging students through success;
  • Training students in complex thinking and learning;
  • Helping students to devise creative solutions for problems;
  • Providing students with new challenges;
  • Teaching students to work cooperatively with others and to understand and value diverse cultures. 

This is an opportunity to develop a unique arts program plan, using measurable goals and best practices, effectively connecting students to the curriculum in dance, media arts, music, theater, and visual arts education programs.  Applicants are encouraged to make use of, and incorporate, art resources available within their communities and the new ESSA (Title I, Title IV-A), STEM/STEAM, 21st Century, Title I and IV-B, K5 Plus, community/school funds, extended learning time, and other funds to enhance the program.

Term of Contract:

The funding period for approved applications will be School Year (SY) 2020–2021.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

New Mexico public school districts, state-chartered schools, and district-chartered schools may apply on behalf of those elementary schools that the district proposes to include in the program plan for this RfA. District-chartered elementary schools may apply on their own behalf or may be included in their district’s application.

Districts may not apply as a consortium. However, following the awarding of funds to individual districts, they may combine fine arts funding as a consortium if it is determined that this will provide the best use of these funds.

For purposes of this RFA, the term elementary school shall be defined as those schools the district has reported through STARS and that serve any of the elementary grades, K-5 and/or grade 6 students with an arts program.
