Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities - National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)
06/17/19 11:59 PM ET Receipt via Grants.gov
An indemnity program is available to USA nonprofit organizations and government agencies holding collections on exhibit within the country. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to the application deadline. Funding is intended for the coverage of qualifying objects of cultural, educational, scientific, or historical value.
The Indemnity Program was created by Congress in 1975 for the purpose of minimizing the costs of insuring international exhibitions. In 2007 Congress expanded eligibility under the Program to include coverage of works of art owned by U.S. entities while on exhibition in the United States.
The indemnity agreement is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States. In the event of loss or damage to an indemnified object, the Federal Council must certify the validity of the claim and request Congress to authorize payment.
Eligible objects include works of art, artifacts or objects, rare documents, books and other printed materials, photographs, films, and electronic materials. Such objects must have educational, cultural, historical, or scientific value.
