In mid-February, we will email you a BAC Grantee contract specifying the terms of your funded project along with a W-9. The contract and W-9 must be signed by the artist or an organization’s authorized representative. If you are funded through a fiscal sponsor, an authorized representative of their organization must sign as well. 

Original grant contracts and W-9s must be signed and returned to BAC's office by the deadline in order to receive funding. Your copies will be included with your award check. 

CONTRACTS AND W-9s DUE AT BAC: Tuesday, February 9, 2017


Checks will be mailed out to the grantee (or an authorized representative) the week of March 15, 2017 or they can be received at the BAC Grants Awards Ceremony, to be held at Brooklyn Borough Hall on March 29, 2017. Award checks will then be available for pick up any time after the ceremony at the Brooklyn Arts Council office in DUMBO (20 Jay Street, Suite 616, Brooklyn, NY 11201). If grantees applied under a fiscal sponsor, checks will be mailed directly to the fiscal sponsor.

NOTE: BAF grants will be paid as follows: First Payment: 80% of total grant, available in March; Final Payment: 20% after submission of a Final Report.

CHECKS RELEASED: Wednesday, March 29, 2017
