The Dramatists Guild Foundation’s Bridge Grants are need-based awards of up to $500, now available to support dramatists with non-emergency and essential daily life expenses including:
– Accessibility support
– Dependent care
– Holistic health care
– Mental health care
– Reproductive care
Applicants must meet DGF’s revised financial and professional eligibility requirements. Eligible dramatists who have previously received a COVID-19 Emergency Grant or Housing Assistance Grant are eligible to apply. This award is designed to be a one-time award to support Dramatists.
It is vital to support writers in times of need so that they can get back to doing what they do best. DGF provides emergency financial assistance to individual playwrights, composers, lyricists, and librettists in dire need of funds due to severe hardship or unexpected illness.
If you are a writer in need, we can help.
Housing Assistance Grants
Housing grants are one-time grants to help theater writers with housing expenses that have accumulated due to the COVID-19 pandemic. DGF is committed to preventing evictions and displacement of dramatic writers as well as helping them rebuild their lives during the period of recovery from the pandemic.
Theatrical writers in the following situations may request help immediately:
– Mortgage and rent payments pending
-Sudden rent increases
-Added payments for services
-Payments pending for moving expenses
– Pending credit card payments due to any of the above reasons.
