Announcing the Inaugural Impact Fund Cohort

June 14, 2016

We are thrilled to introduce the inaugural cohort of the NYC New Music Impact Fund. The Impact Fund, a new project of New Music USA, represents the first major effort to aggregate and amplify the voice of the New York new music community online. It supports new residency relationships, provides general operating support, and leverages our online platform to share events and news with a growing fan base.
