Getting started with the New York State Cultural Data Project

Dear Arts and Cultural Colleagues,

Since the June 1, 2009 launch of the New York State Cultural Data Project (New York State CDP), more than 375 organizations statewide have started using the CDP! This powerful management tool will, at no cost, allow arts managers and artistic leaders to understand and analyze their organization’s financial performance through easy-to-run reports. By participating in the New York State CDP, you will be part of a successful and growing project that will allow researchers and the arts community as a whole to better articulate and provide evidence for the sector’s assets and needs, as well as its contributions to the state and the country. By completing the online form annually, you will also be able to generate reports to be submitted to grantmakers with the click of a button.

Learn more about the New York State CDP at We hope you will join us for a demonstration and discussion and learn about how the CDP can provide valuable tools for your organization. Please review the schedule below and register for one of the upcoming sessions in your area.

Feel free to contact the New York State CDP Help Desk at or 1-888-NYSCDP-1 (1-888-697-2371).
