Guidelines and Instructions
Through funding from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, CLMP is pleased to offer our NYS literary presses, magazines, and chapbook and online publishers the opportunity to apply for grants between $500 and $1,000.
This regrant serves primarily an interim step toward applying effectively to NYSCA in the future for organizations with budgets large enough to do so but without capacity to yet secure a NYSCA grant, as well as to accommodate those excellent publishers with budgets too small to apply to NYSCA directly. All projects must focus on a capacity-building issue and may not cover the routine costs of publishing. Some examples of appropriate requests are consultant fees, software purchases, design expenses, author and guest editor fees, print accessibility projects for the blind, marketing efforts, or fundraising mailings. Final reporting is required from all grantees.
To apply for this program, please submit the following:
1. Project: describe the problem to be addressed and project goals. Be specific; don’t include a list of possible projects. Describe how this project addresses an organizational capacity need. (Be clear about how this project is not part of your routine publishing).
2. Requested amount and details of how the requested funds will be spent.
3. Expected impact of the granted funds and how the success of the project will be evaluated.
4. Organization Mission (one paragraph only).
If you need help with your proposal, or if you would like to consult with CLMP staff about compiling an application, please contact Montana Agte-Studier, Director of Membership & NYSCA NYTAP at email@example.com. We encourage you to speak with us before applying about your intended request.
