About TAP Plus

Theatre Development Fund’s (TDF) TAP Plus program, in partnership with the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) with the support of the New York State Legislature, makes available grants of up to $5,000 for open captioning services in order to increase attendance by people who are hard of hearing or deaf at cultural events that are open to the public in New York State. TAP Plus strongly encourages applications from all regions of the state.

Information on open captioning and a service fee guide are available on our website at www.tdf.org/tap. TDF also can assist in planning an accessible project for people with hearing disabilities.

TAP Plus is an extension of TDF’s award-winning TDF Accessibility Programs (TAP) which offer services for theatregoers with physical disabilities, as well as individuals on the autism spectrum or with other developmental/cognitive disabilities. After more than a year of virtual programming, TAP is beginning its 24th season of in-person open captioned performances of Broadway and Off-Broadway theatre.
