The Affiliate Support Fund offers YA affiliates an opportunity to obtain funding for planning and development of capacity-building initiatives in such areas as strategic planning, artist training, program and assessment development, technology, board and staff development, marketing and fund raising.
The Affiliate Support Fund application process will run concurrent with the Affiliate Development Fund timeline. The intent of the Affiliate Support Fund is to encourage start-up ideas that may eventually lead to an Affiliate Development Fund proposal in future years. These grant ideas may become exemplars or case studies for the network.
Up to ten ASF grants will be awarded for 2015 in amounts ranging from $1,000-$3,500 for initiatives beginning July 1, 2015. Affiliates can apply for either an Affiliate Support Fund (ASF) or Affiliate Development Fund (ADF) grant—but not both in any given year. Applicants should be up-to-date in Cooperative Funding, have submitted their current Affiliate reports and meet the Network branding policy and practice.
