This can be done through the Grant Back account. Steve can provide you with more information regarding how this works.

You apply for and monitor your local contributions situation. The checks are made out to PSI, 90% goes into your grantback account and can be used for a variety of PSI related expenses. Several slams do this already.

The woman who is over the Grants department in Lafayette, LA! will be conducting a free grants workshop this Thursday
Here is an excert of her invitation

Grants are one of the keys to making money as an artist, but it can be hard to wrap your finger around which ones are right for you and just how to write them. Gwen works with the grants over at the Acadiana Center for the Arts and will be giving a presentation to help you know about grants that are available and the best ways to get them.

Free & open to the public!


Can anyone give me some tips and information on what to ask her and how I can present the PSI Grantback program to her?
Thanks
