§ 1100.1 Organization.

(a) The National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities was established by the National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities Act of 1965 (79 Stat. 845; 20 U.S.C. 951). The Foundation is composed of a National Endowment for the Arts, a National Endowment for the Humanities and a Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. Each Endowment is headed by a Chairman and has a National Council composed of 26 Presidential appointees, with the Chairman of the Endowment also serving as Chairman of the Council. The purpose of the Foundation is to develop and promote a broadly conceived national policy of support for the humanities and the arts in the United States.

(b) The Endowments accomplish their missions primarily by providing financial assistance for projects in the arts and the humanities, including the making of fellowship and other awards to individuals as well as awards to nonprofit organizations. By statute, awards made to Organizations by the National Endowment for the Arts may not exceed onehalf the cost of the project, except that a percentage of the Arts Endowment's funds may be used for nonmatching grants to organizations which show that they have attempted unsuccessfully to secure funds equal to the amounts applied for. (c) The organizational arrangement of the Foundation is as follows: (1) Nation a l Endowment for the Arts—(1) Office of the Chairman. The Endowment is headed by the Chairman, who is also Chairman of the National Council on the Arts and a member of the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. The Chairman, with the adVice of the National Council on the Arts and the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities, is responsible for establishing Endowment policies and for developing and carrying out programs to provide support for projects and productions in the arts. The Chairman is assisted by a Deputy Chairman, who is appointed by him. (ii) Program Activities of the Arts ondowment. The activities of the Endow
