- Briefly describe your project in 140 characters or less
- Project details & specific budget
- Tell us more about you: What are your musical hopes for the future? Tell us how the Iguana Music Fund will help you get there.
- What is your musical connection to New England?

First, please read the FAQs and Iguana Fund application, as you may find the answers to your questions in those resources. If you still have questions after reading those materials, then email the Iguana Music Fund. No phone calls please; the committee is not available at Club Passim.
Late applications will not be accepted.
No. If the committee needs more information, then they will contact you. Due to the large volume of applications the committee receives, only winners will be notified directly.
