Why are we reconfiguring five grant programs into one?

  • It’s time to be more responsive to artists and their work. Five programs with five sets of guidelines and eight deadlines gets really confusing -- for everyone -- and it keeps us from meeting the needs of the new music community as well as we could be. By reconfiguring five programs into a single program with a more flexible, biannual deadline, we can meet the comprehensive needs of our applicants simply and easily.
  • Amazing art deserves to be shared. We support a ton of fantastic projects, and we want to make it as easy as possible for the world to know about them. We’ll be featuring awarded projects on dedicated, media-rich pages on our website, allowing everyone to experience and share new music first-hand -- while allowing awardees to access New Music USA’s growing public network through email and social media.
