Description: Period of Performance Our support of a project may start on May 1, 2016, or any time thereafter.  Grants generally may cover a period of performance of up to two years, with an exception for projects that include primary data collection as part of the proposed activity.  Projects that include primary data collection may request up to three years.  RESEARCH: ART WORKS: Grant Program Description Background In September 2012, the NEA's Office of Research Analysis published its five-year research agenda, supported by a system map and measurement model.  Titled How Art Works, the report offers a framework for studying research topics critical to a broader public understanding of the arts' value and/or impact for individuals and communities.  The How Art Works system map presents several different research areas, each ripe for fresh inquiry.  To obtain a better understanding of each area of the map, researchers can collect and analyze data on a host of variables.  Research areas include the system's core components of Arts Participation and Arts Creation; the system's inputs (Arts Infrastructure and Education Training); and the system's main outcomes, e.  g.  , cognitive or emotional benefits to individuals, or civic or economic benefits to communities.  The map is not prescriptive.  It is intended primarily to communicate to potential applicants a cluster of topics and relationships that the NEA is exploring as part of its five-year research agenda.
