PURPOSE OF PROGRAM
The Indie Theater Fund Assistance Program is intended to provide emergency or urgent assistance to those who have an acute need arising from an unforeseen and unavoidable situation which results in an additional hardship that will materially prevent or impede their Independent Theater production. Most often this will be the result of an act of god, illness, injury, accident or a crime for which there is little or no other assistance immediately available. We also provide Urgency Assistance to companies that are presented with an urgent opportunity that would significantly impact a production or the company and that they can not otherwise accept without funding support.
