NEA GAP: Art Works, FY2013
The NEA's guiding principle is embodied in one sentence: "Art works." "Art works" is a noun; the creation of works
of art by artists. "Art works" is a verb; art works on and within people to change and inspire them. "Art works" is a
statement; arts jobs are real jobs that are part of the real economy. Art Works encourages and supports the
following four outcomes: •Creation: The creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence,
•Engagement: Public engagement with diverse and excellent art, •Learning: Lifelong learning in the arts, and
•Livability: The strengthening of communities through the arts. You will be asked to select the outcome that is
most relevant to your project, and you also will be able to select a secondary outcome (note that all Arts
Education applicants must choose the Learning outcome as their primary outcome). When making selections, you
should identify the outcome(s) that reflect the results expected to be achieved by your project. Deadline is March
8, 2012. http://www07.grants.gov/search/search.do?&mode=VIEW&oppId=136693

The Endangered Language Fund provides grants for language maintenance and linguistic field work.
The work most likely to be funded is that which serves both a native community and the field of linguistics. Work
that has immediate applicability to one group and more distant application to the field also will be considered.
Publishing subventions are a low priority but will be considered. Proposals can originate in any country. The
language involved must be in danger of disappearing within a generation or two. Endangerment is a continuum,
and the language's location on the continuum is one factor in ELF's funding decisions.

                                                           4

Private Funding Sources/ Other

State Health Access Reform Evaluation (SHARE) is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation that supports rigorous research on health reform issues by investigators representing diverse
disciplines and backgrounds. The program particularly seeks to identify and fill gaps in research related to state-
level implementation of the Affordable Care Act, with a focus on provisions that are designed to increase access
and coverage. SHARE-sponsored research will provide timely guidance on implementation issues as states
consider their unique responsibilities in executing the ACA, and will contribute to the evidence base for future
state and national health reform efforts.
The State Health Access Data Assistance Center at the University of Minnesota will provide technical support
for the program.
Up to $1.5 million in total funding will be available under this call for proposals. There is no predetermined dollar
amount for individual grants. Project funding will range from $50,000 to $200,000 to accommodate both quick-
turnaround policy analyses of six to twelve months and in-depth research/evaluation studies of twelve to twenty-
four months.


                                                         27
Eligible applicants include state agencies and other institutions working to engage or employ
independent/academic researchers or policy makers working with researchers. The program especially
encourages proposals that enlist junior researchers to collaborate with senior research advisers.
Projects may be generated from any number of disciplines, including health services research, economics,
sociology, program evaluation, political science, public policy, public health, public administration, law, and
business administration. Preference may be given to applicant entities that plan to utilize interdisciplinary teams.
The complete Call for Proposals and application procedures are available at the RWJF Web site. Deadline is
February 22, 2012. Link to Complete RFP

research.
In the treatment research category, Autism Speaks invites both full- and pilot-level grant applications for
innovative studies of promising new interventions for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Research
applications exploring medical approaches may include complementary and alternative forms of healthcare and
pharmacological treatments, as well as behavioral and/or psychosocial interventions. The program also welcomes
studies evaluating the effectiveness, safety, and therapeutic benefits of interventions. In addition, animal model
studies that test the effects of novel compounds with potential to reduce autism symptoms will be considered.
(Deadline for Letters of Intent: February 23, 2012.)

innovative biomedical and behavioral research into the causes, diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and
dissemination of evidence-based practices for ASD. The program seek to provide funding along the entire
research continuum -- from discovery to development to translation and dissemination -- for innovative projects
that promise to deliver real-life benefits to individuals with ASD. (Deadline for Letters of Intent: February 29,
2012.)
Full-level treatment research grants will provide a maximum of $150,000 per year for one to three years. Pilot-
level treatment research grants will provide a maximum of $60,000 per year for one to two years. An amount not
to exceed 10 percent of direct costs may be included for the sponsoring institution's indirect costs.
Investigators holding a full-time faculty appointment, professional affiliation, or the equivalent at an accredited
academic, medical, research, or educational institution are eligible to apply. Applications will not be accepted from
individuals or proprietary organizations to support the research and development of products or treatments for
profit.
