New York State CDP News

Grant Opportunity for Research Using CDP Data

As you may know, the Cultural Data Project's goal has always been to strengthen our sector by providing data that will help better tell the story of the sector's assets, contributions and needs. Using CDP data, regional research organizations in numerous states have been able to provide a clearer snapshot of arts and culture, demonstrating how vital a role the sector plays.

We want to make sure you are aware of a unique research grant opportunity through the new Arts & Culture Research Fund in The New York Community Trust. Supported by The Trust, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, New York Council for the Humanities, and The John R. Oishei Foundation of Western New York, the Arts & Culture Research Fund has announced a Request for Proposals (RFP) for research studies focused on understanding the cultural sector in New York.

Competitive Arts & Culture Research grants, ranging from $10,000 to $25,000, will be awarded to nonprofit organizations and fiscally sponsored individuals/organizations who submit proposals for projects that make use of New York State CDP data and explore significant topics related to the state's creative community.

We are excited to be working with the Arts & Culture Research Fund on this inspiring initiative and can't wait to see how the findings of the selected research projects will guide and inform conversations on the cultural sector in New York.

All proposals must be received by 12:00 pm ET on March 15, 2013 by the Arts & Culture Research Fund.

For questions about the Arts & Culture Research Fund application and eligibility, see the RFP or email at The New York Community Trust.
