Aiming to empower and connect US-based musicians and organizations, New Music USA announced 53 awardees for the first round of their Creator Development Fund

With a total of $200,410 in funding, over 1100 applications were reviewed by a panel of 39 artists. Among the awardees, 68% are artists of color and 51% are women. The work of this year's grant winners is primarily focused on new music.

The Creator Development Fund aims to make grant programs equitable for all. The peer-review process for the fund focuses on combatting bias, with the panel comprising 49% women and 54% people of color.

“The number and quality of applications submitted to our Creator Development Fund have been exceptional," said Vanessa Reed, New Music's President. "We’re hearing from a broader range of creators than ever before and their shared commitment to collaboration in these challenging times gives us inspiration and hope.

"Our only regret is not being able to support more of the 1,000+ applications to this fund. Individual artists need as much help as the organizations that put on their work – it’s the continued risk-taking and creativity of music creators that enables the art form we love to keep evolving and bringing us joy."
