Department of Cultural Affairs Announces New Grant Program

The following information has been out in the ether for a few weeks now, or so I understand, but with everything that has been going on, plus being away, I haven't had an opportunity to blog about it.

First, the place to look for more information is the Department of Cultural Affairs' website, specifically here.

Here, however, is the basic information. Do click on the link for applications and further instruction. This is good news, I hope (and think, and pray).

The Department of City Planning and the Department of Cultural Affairs are pleased to provide information on the pilot phase of a new grant program designed to recognize the vital role that theater plays in the overall economic and social well-being of New York City. The Theater Subdistrict Council Grant Program will be open to organizations and/or consortia that:

1. offer theater-related cultural programs based in and operating in the five boroughs
2. are incorporated in New York State
3. have been in existence and providing cultural services for two years
4. had an operating income of $200,000 or more in FY07

No more than 10 awards are expected to be made in this pilot phase; initial awards will be for $50,000 or more. Intents to Apply will be due October 31, 2008. Respondents to the Intent to Apply will be notified in mid-December if they will be invited to submit a full application; a decision regarding which projects will be funded in the pilot phase of the grant program will be announced in late February, after a review of the full applications.
