Capital Pre-Scoping & Feasibility Planning Pilot Program

The Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) launched a pilot program in FY 2024, called Capital Pre-Scoping and Feasibility Planning (CPSFP) to assist two selected not-for-profit cultural organizations with 501(c)(3) status considering a capital construction or renovation project. Due to be completed June, 2024, the CPSFP pilot program will identify a path for the not-for-profit cultural organization to successfully define and initiate a capital project or recommend alternative strategies should a capital construction or renovation project be inadvisable. During the pilot program, each eligible organization is working with a consultant, contracted by DCLA, to conduct a review of the organization’s capital needs in relation to its existing operating model to develop a feasible strategy that is scaled appropriately to align the organization’s capital needs with its administrative and fundraising capacity.

The pilot will be assessed by DCLA with the hopes of extending the program in future fiscal years. If extended for FY 2025, applications will likely be due in March.
