Composer Assistance Program - Recording
Next deadline: July 16, 2012
Direct assistance is available for first recordings of music by living American composers, or for the reissuance of recordings of works by living American composers that are no longer available. Grants are project-based. There must be a specific work (or works) associated with the grant request. Grants are intended to help advance the careers of early and mid-career composers. Applications from established composers who have achieved significant career accomplishments will not be funded in this program. New Music USA defines American composers and their music in two ways:
Composers who are U.S. citizens regardless of place of domicile.
Composers who are not U.S. citizens but whose primary musical activity took place or has taken place in the U.S. for a period of at least five years so that a substantial portion of their musical output is part of the fabric of American music.
New Music USA will award up to 15 grants of between $5,000 and $10,000 in 2011-12.
