"Imagine Your Parks" is a new grant initiative created in partnership by the NEA and the National Park Service to celebrate the intersections between the two agencies in honor of the NEA's 50th anniversary in 2015 and the National Park Service's centennial in 2016. "Imagine Your Parks" will provide an anticipated $1 million in funding through the NEA Art Works grant category to projects that use the arts to connect people with memorable places and landscapes of the National Park System.

"Imagine Your Parks" will support art projects that encourage the creation of and greater public engagement with art around the National Park System. The National Park System includes not only National Parks, but also national historic sites, trails, rivers, seashores, landmarks and national monuments, heritage areas, preserves, battlefields, recreation areas, and more.

Funding will encourage partnerships with park areas or programs and will also support projects that promote public engagement in urban environments, or that engage younger generations with the National Park System. Projects may take place at and around the National Park System, or may take place elsewhere in the United States with a focus on the work and mission of the National Park Service.

"Imagine Your Parks" is funded through the NEA Art Works grant category. New Art Works grant guidelines are available at http://arts.gov/grants/apply-grant/grants-organizations. Projects in all art disciplines are eligible for consideration for the "Imagine Your Parks" funding. Prospective grantees can join a January 21 webinar < see http://arts.gov/event/2015/art-works-guidelines-workshop> to learn about Art Works applications and guidelines, including the "Imagine Your Parks" opportunity.

The formal announcement will be released in January.
