Dear friends and supporters,
Thank you for sharing your concerns regarding the de-funding of New Heritage Theatre Group, New Federal Theater Group and The Negro Ensemble Company by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (NYC DCA) peer panel process. Your concerns have been heard and we appreciate your prompt attention to confirm the importance of theatres of color and the communities of where we reside and throughout New York City. The DCA has informed us that the New York City Black, Latin and Asian Caucus (BLAC) members have allocated funding for the Coalition of Theatres of Color (CTC) FY 2016 where all three organizations are members to augment the DCA panel process funding. The BLAC funding will be administered through the DCA. We will keep you informed of our next steps.
