WHICH FUNDING ROUND?

Deciding which round of grants to apply for depends on when your project will take place.

 

The Board policy does not permit retroactive funding of projects. If your project happens before the granting decision date, the application will be ineligible. Since projects must happen within 12 months of receiving a grant, timing the application to an earlier round ensures that the deadline criteria is met.

 

If your project will take place between January 1 and Decmber 30, apply for the Fall round of the preceding year (September deadline).

 

If your project will take place between July 1 and the following June 30, apply for the Spring round of the current year (March deadline).

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Tony is writing and directing a play that will have its first performance in July 2021. He must submit his completed application for the Spring 2021 round, due May 7, 2021.

 

Maria is applying for funding for a choral performance that will take place in April 2022. She must submit her completed application for the Fall 2021 round, due October 15, 2021.
