    USA was founded in 2006, partly to fill a gap that the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) left when it cut individual artist grants in 1995. Following a report published in 2003 about the experience of artists in America, four founding donor organizations—Rockefeller, Rasmuson, Ford, and Prudential—joined forces to create USA. In order to effectively survey the whole country’s artist pool, they chose a model in which some 1000 nominators are tapped to provide names of talented candidates, who are then considered by a committee.
