CAAM's Documentary Fund opens July 17, 2019. The deadline to apply is August 26, 2019.

With support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), CAAM provides production funding to independent producers who make engaging Asian American works for public television.

Documentaries are eligible for production or post-production funding and must be intended for public television broadcast. Awards typically range between $10,000 and $50,000.

Please note that the application process is now on a new platform called Submittable. We have also made a few changes to our application form questions and format in an effort to align with field standards. 

Please visit our Submittable page to submit your Documentary Fund application starting Wednesday, July 17, 2019 and ending Monday, August 26, 2019.

Please contact with any questions.
