Accelerator Awards are open to Creative Youth Development (CYD) music organizations seeking to influence youth-serving systems so all young people can access learning, creating, and performing experiences that empower them to thrive. Multi-year awards of $500,000 each will be awarded in January 2024. By applying for the Accelerator Awards, organizations are also eligible for funding ranging from $15,000 to $75,000. We don't use geography as a basis for decision-making. It's all about the impact you make in your community!
