Applying


The Fiscal 2021 CDF Application period closed on February 18, 2020. Funding panels will convene in the spring; the outcome of the Fiscal 2021 CDF process will be announced once panels have concluded and the Agency's Fiscal 2021 budget is finalized.

If your organization missed the Fiscal 2021 CDF deadline and is still interested in seeking support for Fiscal 2021 cultural programming, contact your local arts council to determine if you are eligible for support through the Greater New York Arts Development Fund, a regrant program administered on DCLA's behalf by each borough's local arts council.

Organizations interested in applying for CDF support in Fiscal 2022 should review the eligibility requirements and the Fiscal 2021 application materials to get a sense of the current process and requirements:

Organizations that meet the eligibility criteria and have not recently submitted CDF applications may register at any time; however, the FY22 CDF Application will not be available until January 2021. Though the FY22 CDF application will not be available until early 2021, if you are a new applicant and would like to receive email updates regarding the CDF application, register your organization on the CDF online portal using the email address of your organization’s primary DCLA contact. For assistance with registration, review the CDF Online Registration Document.

Current or past CDF Applicants or Grantees may view their submissions at any time by logging in to the online application:
