Type of Opportunity: Touring Grant

Deadline: August 1, 2019

NEST (New England States Touring) funds presentations of New England-based performing artists from outside of a presenter’s state.

Program Goals

  • Give the communities of New England direct access to the artistic excellence and diversity available in this region.
  • Provide New England artists with the opportunity to build audiences through touring to a variety of communities, thereby increasing demand for their work.
  • Encourage thorough planning of projects that provide meaningful interaction between New England artists and communities.
  • Remove barriers to participation due to race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, class, age, and geography.

Process

Online applications must be submitted before midnight on the deadline date. Applications must be submitted a minimum of three months in advance of the proposed project. NEST grant recipients will be notified six-eight weeks following the deadline. A finite amount of funds is allocated each year; organizations are encouraged to submit applications early within NEFA’s fiscal year (June 1 through May 31).

Online reports must be submitted within 40 days from the end of the artist engagement to receive reimbursement. Full instructions are in the Requirements & Reports for Grant Recipients section.

NEFA staff is available for assistance Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM EST.

NEST deadlines occur three times a year, or every four months, as follows:

  • First business day of August, for projects beginning on or after November 1
  • First business day of December, for projects beginning on or after March 1
  • First business day of April, for projects beginning on or after July 1
