Sustainable Arts Foundation 2017 Awards

Due to the intense demand for our awards, we have decided to consolidate our spring and fall award rounds into a single annual program to be held in the fall, with at least $80,000 in funds guaranteed.

This decision allows our staff and jurors to concentrate on one review period, with the rest of the year to increase our advocacy efforts in support of parent artists and writers, as well as to seek additional funds and support to increase the breadth of our programs. We’re excited about what this extra time will allow us to do.

Applicants will have access to the same amount of annual monetary support. Those who are re-applying will be better served by having a year’s worth of new work to show.

Our award program has just one eligibility requirement: each applicant must have at least one child under the age of 18. As a one-time exception because of this calendar change, anyone who still has a child under 18 as of March 1st, 2017 will be eligible to apply in 2017. Moving forward, applicants will need to have a child under 18 by the date of our application deadline.
