Theater Subdistrict Council Grant Program


Contributed by Guest Bloggers of the week, Katie Rosin & Antonio MiniƱo of Kampfire Films PR

Here is something Kampfire received last week that we think you all will be interested in:

The Theater Subdistrict Council is pleased to announce the second round of a grant program designed to recognize the vital role that theater plays in the overall economic and social well-being of New York City. Projects receiving support will seek to celebrate the live art form of theater and create and expand the audience base attending live theater, as well as enhance the body and quality of performance options. Funding for the grant program is provided through contributions to the Theater Subdistrict Fund made in connection with the transfer of development rights from Broadway theaters.

  • Eligibility in this second phase of the grant program is open to organizations and/or consortia that:

  • offer theater-related cultural programs based in and operating in the five boroughs
  • are incorporated in New York State
  • have been in existence and providing cultural services for two years
  • had an operating income of $200,000 or more in FY09
Further background information on the grant program as well as an Intent to Apply form and instructions will be available on the NYC Department of City Planning and NYC Department of Cultural Affairs websites as of the close of business Friday, February 12th, 2010. Completed Intent to Apply forms must be postmarked by April 9, 2010. The Intent to Apply is the first step in the application process.
