Pacific Territories Grant

Stemming the loss of traditional practices through the exchange of visual art, song, and dance

The Pacific Territories Grant, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with PREL, works to increase organizational capacity and collaboration among the Pacific Arts Councils. The grant focuses on the three Pacific Arts Councils located in American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam.

It provides technical assistance to the councils in strategic planning and arts education programing. It also designs opportunities for the three councils to work together on an annual arts education project. The Pacific Network (PACNET) is the website that assists in reporting current contacts and information about each Pacific Council.
