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, provide greater access for the disabled, enhance exhibition or performing space, better maintain and preserve of historic buildings and increase protection of botanical, zoological and fine art collections.
