National Theater Project Creation and Touring Grant


New England Foundation for the Arts seeks nonprofit organizations and theater ensembles to produce and present touring projects throughout the country. Applicants are required to submit a preliminary application prior to submitting a full application. Artists may apply with collaborating nonprofit organizations. Eligible expenses include creation, development, and artist fees.

Modeled on NEFA’s National Dance Project, NTP not only provides funding but also animates an informed, interactive network of producing theaters, presenters, and ensembles that promote the funded projects and the development of the field as a whole. Projects are supported through Creation & Touring Grants, which fund creation and preparation for touring of devised projects and Presentation Grants, which are awarded to presenters by the artist and support up to 50% of the artistic fee for NTP projects.

The application deadline is September 27th2023

Eligibility for the grant includes:

  • The National Theater Project will consider projects submitted by U.S.-based theater ensembles and individual theater artists with identified collaborators. Only one application per ensemble or artist will be accepted per year.
  • Ensembles must have nonprofit status or a contract with a nonprofit fiscal agent.
  • This grant supports the creation of new work. The project development end date must be at least 3-6 months post award date to ensure that the project is still in development at the time the grant is awarded.
  • All projects must have one committed, U.S.-based development partner relationship.
  • Preference is given to those projects which are within two years of being ready to tour from the NTP award date.
  • Preference is given to those projects with at least one interested presenting partner.
