Expeditions grants support New England nonprofit organizations to plan and implement tours of arts projects involving New England, national, and international artists.

On October 1, 2019, NEFA announced a series of changes to the Expeditions and New England States Touring (NEST) programs, merging the two under the NEST moniker and sunsetting the Expeditions program. Please visit the NEST Grant page to learn about tour support for artists from inside or outside of New England.



The Expeditions program is made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
