Rapid relief grants of up to $500 will be awarded to support our community, prioritizing the consortium of companies, venues, and individuals working in NYC independent theater (Off-Off-Broadway in theater houses of 99 seats or less), operating with budgets under $250,000. Applications from artists of color, LGBTQIA+, disabled and immigrant/undocumented artists will be prioritized. We will award grants on an on-going basis until our funds run out. Grants can be requested via a simple online application (LINK HERE: https://forms.gle/pLm7bLhKQE8AbpDn6) . We will do our best to turn review and processing of these applications around quickly. Grantees will be asked to give a short report about the use of funds. UPDATE: The Indie Theater Fund closed our Rapid Relief Funds application temporarily ON MONDAY 4/20/20 in order to address the hundreds of applications we already have in. We’ve received 700 applications so far. We’ve funded 190+, granting just over $71,000.
Artists in the most urgent need due to COVID-19, centering artists of color, LGBTQIA+ artists, immigrant/undocumented artists and those with disabilities.
