Application & Timeline

Application Process

Dance/NYC is using an online application portal (dancenyc.submittable.com).

Tier I 
The portal is open and the deadline for the EOI is June 18, 2024, 5:00 p.m. ET.

Submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) Form on Submittable including:

• Operating Budgets (FY22 & FY23 actuals)
• Proof of tax-exempt or fiscal sponsorship status
• History of at least three years of local dance-making activity in the metropolitan NYC area 
• Most recent Financial Statement or IRS Form 990

Following submission, Dance/NYC will review the EOI materials for eligibility and completeness. Grantees of the previous (2022-2023) iteration of the program will not be required to respond to the EOI and will automatically be invited to the next part of the application process, in as much as they are in good standing and in alignment with program goals and management.  Applicants who submit a complete and eligible EOI at this phase of the process will receive a modest honorarium of $200 for their work and advance to the next phase. Grantees of the previous (2022-2023) iteration of the program who are automatically invited to the next tier of the application process will not receive an EOI honorarium.

Complete EOIs must be submitted online no later than 5:00 p.m. E.T. on Tuesday, June 18, 2024. Incomplete EOIs, hard copy submissions, and EOIs received after the June 18 deadline will not be considered.
