The Foundation, the legacy of the late puppeteer Jim Henson, the creator of the Muppets, awards grants for the creation and development of innovative works of puppet theater. The Foundation awards Project Grants of $5,000 for the continued development and production of new works ready to be presented in the coming year; Seed Grants of $2,000 for the development and workshopping of pieces in earlier stages of creation; and Family Grants of $3,000 for the development of new and innovative work specifically for children, families, and teens. Grants are made only for the development of new works of live puppet theater. The Foundation does not award funds for the presentation or remounting of existing work. Presenters’ Grants of $5, 000 to $10,000 to promote the presentation of excellence in contemporary puppet theater in New York City, are by invitation only.
