  • Cycle 9 of the Rauschenberg Dancer Emergency Grants is now open with a deadline of September 8. This program has been updated to reflect the current, still challenging, working environment for dancers. It’s open to dancers who are in a dire financial emergency due to the loss or lack of recent/current live performance work, because of circumstances outside of their control. Common circumstances include cancelled performances, cutbacks or cancellations of dance engagement contracts, loss of touring opportunities, and ongoing shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact. Three more future cycles are scheduled. Three more cycles are scheduled through June 2024. https://www.nyfa.org/awards-grants/rauschenberg-emergency-grants/rauschenberg-dancer-emergency-grants/
  • Cycle 20 of the Rauschenberg Medical Emergency Grants opens August 22, with a deadline of September 22.

Additional bimonthly cycles will run through June 2024. https://www.nyfa.org/awards-grants/rauschenberg-emergency-grants/rauschenberg-medical-emergency-grants/
