The American Music Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and underwriting performances of American classical music of the past as well as selectively commissioning new works from American composers.

AMP grants paused for 20-21 season

The American Music Project is pausing grant submissions and awards for the 2020-21 season due to Covid-19.

“With great regret, I’m sorry to announce that we will not be able to make any AMP grants for performances of American repertoire in the 20-21 season,” said Lawrence A. Johnson, AMP founder and president, on Thursday. “Fundraising for the American Music Project has always been difficult under the best of circumstances. Due to the current financial challenges, it would be irresponsible for the foundation to allow people to submit applications for grants we may not be able to afford.”

The American Music Project plans to renew its grant program in May of 2021 for the 2021-22 season.
