After-School Arts Partnerships Awards

Posted on: September 29, 2009

The NYC Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) and the NYC Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) are pleased to announce program guidelines for the After-School Arts Partnerships (ASAP) awards.  The awards are for nonprofit New York City cultural organizations to provide services for elementary and middle school students participating in out-of-school activities near schools in need of improving their programs in arts education throughout the City. In Fiscal Year 2010, one-time funding is available for cultural initiatives to be delivered in collaboration with specially designated after-school program sites. Awards will be made at the level of $5,000 per site.

For more information on the program and application instructions, visit the DCA’s website at www.nyc.gov/culture. If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact the Department of Cultural Affairs by email at ASAP@culture.nyc.gov.

ASAP is a program of the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City with generous support provided by a one-time grant from the JCPenney Afterschool Fund.
