Renewing


The FY22 Renewal application is  due June 14, 2021 at 5:00 pm (EST).

Grantees with multiyear commitments are eligible to renew support for Fiscal 2022. To renew, multiyear grantees must complete an online CDF Renewal Form that details its public services for the City’s upcoming fiscal year.

Organizations should review the FY21 Renewal application and supplemental materials below; the Renewal Checklist; and the Blank Renewal.

Application Webinar

The Programs Unit is hosting a Zoom webinar on Tuesday, June 8, at 10:00am to review the Fiscal 2022 Cultural Development Fund Renewal Application process. You can register for the upcoming webinar via DCLA’s Zoom Registration page.

DCLA recorded the first Fiscal 2022 CDF Renewal Application webinar and uploaded a recording of that webinar as a resource for prospective applicants. You can view the FY22 Cultural Development Fund Renewal Application Webinar  on DCLA’s YouTube Channel.
