SAAs and RAOs are encouraged to submit their applications electronically through the Arts Endowment's eGRANT on-line application system. See "How to Prepare and Submit an Application" for details.

In the event of a major emergency that affects a large number of applicants for an extended period of time (e.g., a multi-state power outage or a natural disaster such as a hurricane), the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts may decide to adjust application deadlines. If this occurs, it will be announced on the Arts Endowment’s Web site.
