The Dramatists Guild Foundation's (DGF) Housing Assistance Grants are one-time awards that assist professional dramatists (playwrights, composers, lyricists, librettists) with housing expenses. DGF is committed to preventing eviction and displacement among theater writers and to help dramatists rebuild their lives during the pandemic recovery period.

Theater writers should apply for immediate financial assistance with the following: 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. 

If you hold a minimum of $15,000 in your combined bank accounts, we kindly ask that you refrain from applying at this time.

Please note that applications submitted without the required supporting documentation will be rejected upon review.

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