Renewing


JUNE 19, 2019 – The Fiscal 2020 Renewal Application portal is experiencing technical difficulties. We are continuing to try to resolve these issues. As of today, we are extending the Renewal period by one week. Renewal applications – inclusive of the online form and the hard-copy supplemental materials, will now be due on Monday, July 1, 2019.

Grantees with multiyear commitments for the FY18-20 or FY19-21 grant cycle are eligible to renew support for Fiscal 2020. To renew, multiyear grantees must complete an online CDF Renewal Form that details its public services for the City’s upcoming fiscal year. In addition to the online form, Supplemental Materials must either be mailed or hand-delivered to our office. Submissions of both the online form and Supplemental Materials are due no later than Monday, July 1, 2019.

Download and review the documents below before beginning the renewal process: the Renewal Guidelines detail applicable eligibility and funding requirements; the Renewal Instructions explain the high level of programmatic and financial detail expected in your submission, as well as provide essential tools to help you navigate the online form; the Renewal Checklist itemizes the materials required for your submission to be considered complete; and the Blank Renewal provides printable screenshots of each section of the online form.

Supplemental Materials


Completed online CDF Renewal Forms must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. on July 1, 2019. Hard copies of the Supplemental materials must be RECEIVED in our offices at 31 Chambers Street on or before 6:00 p.m. on Monday, July 1st, whether via mail carrier, messenger, or hand-delivery. If using a mail service please take into account that this is a “received by deadline,” and shipping may take longer than posted estimates.

Renewal submissions are subject to review by the Agency and additional information may be requested prior to approval.

Every applicant must complete a Cultural Data Profile (CDP), administered by SMU DataArts (formerly known as the Cultural Data Project). After completing the online Data Profile with financial and programmatic information for Fiscal 2017, organizations will be required to print and submit the DCLA CDF Funder Report with the Supplemental materials. To learn more, visit CDP’s website. View the most recent CDP New User Orientation webinar.

Existing CDF Grantees may view past or current submissions at any time by logging into the online application:
