For nearly 60 years, the Dramatists Guild Foundation's Emergency Grant program has provided support to writers who are facing hardships, and has listened to their needs. During the theatrical shutdown, 80% of those hardships were related to housing.
As a result, the Dramatists Guild Foundation has created a specific application for those who are facing housing challenges right now. DGF is committed to preventing eviction and displacement among theatricals writers and to helping dramatists rebuild their lives during the pandemic recovery period.
If you, or a fellow writer, could use financial support for outstanding mortgage and rent payments, sudden increases to rent prices, overdue utility bills, outstanding costs related to moving, or credit card debt related to any of the aforementioned reasons, the Housing Assistance Grant is available for you.
DGF serves all dramatists based in the United States, regardless of their immigration status.
