Grantee Requirements: MN/NYC Film, Video, and Digital Production Grant Programs
Artists provided with support through this program must request and receive all grant funds within 18 months of notification of the grant. Production must also begin within 18 months after receipt of a grant. All funds must be used within two years of the date of the grant award letter unless specifically approved by the staff in advance. Exceptions to this policy, such as personal emergencies, must be approved in advance by Foundation staff.
Grantees may not substitute a different project for the film or video for which a grant was received. Doing so may result in the Foundation recalling the grant. Any major changes to the nature or scope of the project must be approved in advance by the Foundation.
Grant recipients are required to submit annual progress reports for every year until the film is completed. Upon completion of the project, a final financial and narrative report and online link to the project must be submitted to the Foundation. Grantees who do not submit final reports are ineligible to apply for additional support from the Jerome Foundation until the report has been submitted.
Grants are considered taxable income. Grantees must provide a social security number to the Foundation and will receive a 1099 for any year in which grant funds are received. All grantees are listed in the Jerome Foundation's annual tax return, which is a public document and is posted on the Foundation's website. For more information on public access to the tax returns of foundations, please contact Foundation staff.
