Grantee Requirements: MN/NYC Film, Video, and Digital Production Grant Programs

Additional Program Requirement

  • Artists provided with support through this program must request and receive all of their grant funds within 18 months of notification of the grant. Production must also begin within 18 months after receipt of a grant. Exceptions to this policy, such as personal emergencies, must be approved in advance by Foundation staff.
  • Artists apply as individuals, or as multiple-person teams with equal responsibility as co-directors, to the Foundation. This program does not accept applications through fiscal sponsors. In the case of multi-person teams, all co-applicants must meet all eligibility requirements.
  • 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 by the Foundation.
  • Grant recipients are required to submit annual progress reports for every year in which Jerome Foundation funds are used to support the project. Upon completion of the project, a final financial and narrative report and DVD or digital copy of 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. 

The Foundation currently is not accepting new applications for the General Program. Unless you are a current grantee requesting continued support for a program or project, please do not start an application. Contact The Foundation with questions.

The Travel and Study Grant Program application is now open with a deadline of December 8, 2016. The Jerome Emerging Composer / Sound Artist Fellowship Program is open with a deadline of January 26, 2017.
