"Today is an exciting day for New Music USA; we are thrilled to award $311,000 to the 57 projects comprising our second round of project grants awardees. Our organization and the 43 peer panelists who helped us make our awards are delighted to support an amazing group of projects. We received 1,174 project requests this round! The total amount requested represented the need for more than 9.8 million dollars in support. Those numbers in relation to our current funding capacity are humbling, but also inspiring; these submissions only capture a glimpse of the overwhelming creativity resonating throughout the United States today. We wish we could support even more."
