Capital Funding

The Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), through its Capital Projects Unit, supports design and construction projects and major equipment purchases at the 34 City-owned cultural institutions and approximately 200 other cultural facilities throughout the five boroughs.

The goals of the capital program are to assist the nonprofit cultural community in providing increased public service, providing greater access to people with disabilities, enhancing exhibition or performance space, the construction and/or restoration of buildings, and increasing the protection of botanical, zoological, and fine art collections.
