The POETRY Foundation: Grants

In December 2021, the Poetry Foundation announced a new grantmaking strategy to provide support to the fields of poetry and literary arts.

The Poetry Foundation has committed $9 million over three years, beginning in 2022. Deadline: Friday, October 14. Grants will support US-based nonprofit organizations through the following priorities:

  • Continuing relief funding in 2022 to literary and poetry organizations impacted by the pandemic;
  • Investing in building and strengthening the capacity of BIPOC leadership at poetry, literary arts, and publishing organizations, and programs;
  • Cultivating and engaging new, diverse audiences for poetry;
  • Fostering new collaborations and partnerships, as well as innovation and new technologies in the field.
