This form is for dramatists (playwrights, composers, lyricists, librettists) to apply for emergency financial assistance from the Dramatists Guild Foundation due to Covid-19 related circumstances. 

Please note: DGF's eligibility restrictions have recently changed. Applicants who have previously been awarded one DGF Emergency Grant and meet new eligibility requirements are welcome to apply to this program. If you have received two DGF Emergency Grants since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, or hold a minimum of $15,000 in your combined bank accounts, we kindly ask that you refrain from re-applying or applying at this time.

Dramatists seeking funding for mental health and wellness practices are encouraged to apply to DGF's Steven Schwartzberg Grant for Mental Health and Wellness.

DGF serves all dramatists based in the United States, regardless of their immigration status.
