EBFA Review process:
The deadline for the next round of grants is January 20, 2015 at 11:59 p.m.
New applicants to EBFA are required to attend a technical assistance webinar that will review the proposal guidelines and matching process. We recommend that returning applicants also attend the webinar in order to ensure your understanding of the guidelines.
Please register via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are unable to attend, the webinars will be available on-demand on this page after January 6. You must notify us at email@example.com you plan to view the webinar on-demand.
A panel will review proposals and staff will contact applicants as needed. We will inform applicants of the panel’s decision by March 2015.
You will have 90 days (For Organizations) or 120 days (For Artists) to secure your funding. Premieres or work in progress should take place within one year of making the match.
