Need help increasing attendance by people with hearing loss? TDF Accessibility Grants for New York Cultural Organizations, in conjunction with New York State Council for the Arts, provides grants designed to add captioning services to events that are being made available to the public in New York State.

TDF has partnered with the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to provide a limited number of grants per year to organizations that show a need for captioning services.

Any institution that currently receives NYSCA funding is eligible for the program.
