Housing Assistance Grants
The Dramatists Guild Foundation’s (DGF) Housing Assistance Grants are one-time awards that assist professional dramatists (playwrights, composers, lyricists, librettists) with housing expenses accrued as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. DGF is committed to preventing eviction and displacement among theater writers and to help dramatists rebuild their lives during the pandemic recovery period.
Theater writers should apply for immediate financial assistance with the following: outstanding mortgage and rent payments, sudden increases to rent prices, overdue utility bills, outstanding costs related to moving, or credit card debt related to any of the aforementioned reasons.
Steven Schwartzberg Grants
for Mental Health & Wellness
Writers are the beating heart of theater, whom we rely upon to take us on journeys and inspire us to think through the stories they create for the stage. During these unprecedented times, DGF has created the Steven Schwartzberg Grants to provide financial support for mental health and wellness services for theater writers. To help connect writers to therapists, DGF has partnered with Advekit, an online therapist matching service, to expand access to mental health support that might be out of reach.
