PlayUSA Opens 2023-2024 Grant Cycle


PlayUSA, an annual grants program administered by Carnegie Hall, has just launched their latest application cycle for 2023-2024. In addition to up to $35,000 of funding per year, the program offers a wealth of training and professional development opportunities to K-12 instrumental music education programs across the U.S. Programs that offer no-cost instruction to students facing socio-economic, geographic, or other challenges are encouraged to apply. In addition to dedicated mentorship from Carnegie Hall staff, recipients will be joining a national network of community-based music programs with whom they can exchange best practices. Before applying, organizations are asked to complete an Eligibility Form by February 20 via Acceptd. You can also check their list of 2022-2023 partners to get a sense of which types of programs they support. Full grant criteria is laid out on Carnegie Hall’s website.
