Highlights of the changes to the guidelines for this year and what they mean to you:
The Presenting discipline has been renamed Presenting & Multidisciplinary Works. Why the change? The NEA wanted the Presenting discipline to be as open and welcoming to all multidisciplinary applications and felt a need to have the title and description properly reflect it. Additionally, some changes to the types of projects that will be accepted at each Art Works deadline have been switched between March and August. Review criteria to address innovation and inclusion have been added for the Art Works category. Also in the Art Works category, applicants in all disciplines will upload their work samples electronically to NEA-GO over the same two-week period of time. Last year you had only one week to upload your samples and did so on a schedule according to your discipline. References to the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) have been updated to reflect the migration to the System for Award Management (SAM). SAM is the same as the old CCR, just with a different web address.Upcoming Webinars 

A  series of webinars were conducted on the new guidelines.
