CRNY relies on several major partners to support our programs. Learn more about each below.
A leader in the guaranteed income and economic equality space, Community Financial Resources (CFR) is one of the payment distribution partners for CRNY’s Guaranteed Income for Artists program.
SteadyApp’s partnership with CRNY supports the Guaranteed Income for Artists program in two ways: verifying participants’ income to better understand their financial story, and, as one of CRNY's distribution partners, depositing the funds directly into artists’ bank accounts.
Since 1893, Henry Street Settlement (HSS) has delivered effective, compassionate and comprehensive services to residents of the Lower East Side and NYC. Through CRNY's partnerships with HSS and WWL, participating artists in the Guaranteed Income for Artists program have access to benefits counselors to help understand the impact of the additional funds on existing benefits.
Work Without Limits specializes in assisting individuals to understand how earned and unearned income may affect eligibility for public benefits with special focus on disabled people. Through CRNY's partnerships with WWL and HSS, participating artists in the Guaranteed Income for Artists program have access to benefits counselors to help understand the impact of the additional funds on existing benefits.
Jain Family Institute (JFI) provides expertise in the field of implementing and researching guaranteed income demonstrations to fortify CRNY’s Guaranteed Income for Artists program. Our partnership includes the secure data storage of applicant materials.
Tribeworks is a cooperative, worker-owned payments and employment platform built to support creatives so they can focus on what they do best–creating. Tribeworks provides employment and benefits to artists in CRNY's Artist Employment Program who are collaborating with small organizations that are unable to provide these services.
GoodCall designed and operated the CRNY Help Desk from February 14, 2022 through March 25, 2022. Their work to create systemic change through technology and community organizing opened access to CRNY’s program applications to thousands of new Yorkers.
CRNY hired ten artist organizers from around New York State to recruit artists and organizations to apply for both of CRNY’s programs. This Artist Outreach Corps was equipped to answer questions and support the overall application process—from helping applicants figure out which program was the best fit, to connecting artists and organizations in their region for an Artist Employment Program application.
