The New York City New Music Impact Fund is a new program, supported by a three-year, $495,000 grant from The Scherman Foundation’s Axel and Katherine Rosin Fund, that distributes general operating and residency grants to smaller new music ensembles, venues, and presenters (many of which are artist-led) and uses New Music USA's web platform to create a home for the community and market their work in new and creative ways.

The Amphion Foundation, Inc., founded in 1987 by Elliott and Helen Carter, was established to encourage the performance of contemporary concert music, particularly by American composers, through support to performing and presenting organizations that have demonstrated sustained artistic excellence, in addition to service organizations. The Foundation’s mission is carried out through its grant program. The Foundation is also the principal legatee under the wills of Elliott and Helen Carter and supports performances and other projects relating to the music of Elliott Carter.
