The Media Arts Assistance Fund (MAAF) for Artists, administered by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) in partnership with Wave Farm, provides support for the completion and/or public presentation of new works in all genres of sound and moving image art, including emergent technology. Grant awards assist artists in completing new work, reaching public audiences, and advance artistic exploration and public engagement in the media arts. New York state artists may apply for up to $7,500. Women, gender nonconforming people, and people of color are encouraged to apply. The Fund provides unique and critical support with a focus on sustainability and public engagement. Please direct all questions to

For organizations, MAAF provides funds to support technical strategies for online development as well as to hire outside consultants to support organizational and professional development. Eligible organizations have missions specific to the media arts, dedicate the majority of their programming to technology as an art form, and are current NYSCA grantees. Priority will be given to Electronic Media and Film organizations. Applications from multi-disciplinary organizations that incorporate art and technology will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
