The Neighborhood Arts Program (NAP) program is designed to encourage and support the presentation of high-quality instructional arts programs benefiting youth-at-risk, seniors, or persons with disabilities in Chicago's low to moderate income neighborhoods. Individual artists with demonstrated teaching and/or performing experience in these communities may request up to $4,000 for workshops or touring performances suitable for Chicago Housing Authority, Chicago Park District, community centers, schools, or facilities serving senior citizens or persons with disabilities.
