Thank you for your RSVP

If you are an arts or cultural nonprofit organization, or an unincorporated arts group on your way to incorporation, please join the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) for an info session about applying for and securing City funding for arts and cultural activities.

At each session, DCLA will offer an overview of the Cultural Development Fund, which is the city's open, competitive funding process for arts and cultural organizations throughout the five boroughs. In addition, representatives from the five Local Arts Councils will discuss their funding opportunities and array of services for smaller organizations and unincorporated collectives at the sessions noted below.
