New Music USA (, thanks to support from New York Community Trust, is leading a new two-year capacity-building program for a diverse cohort of small sized groups committed to presenting, performing, or promoting new music by living music creators on a regular basis. The New Music Capacity Building Program ( will combine financial support with professional development opportunities to aid ten NYC-based organizations as they navigate their way through the next stages of COVID-19 and beyond.

Our program will offer a flexible approach to the selected groups or organizations; each will receive $5,000 per year for two years, for a total of $10,000 each, in order to implement organizational plans that they will design in consultation with New Music USA staff and industry experts.
