Program costs and fees

Costs and fees

This is the inaugural year of the Project 14C residency program and we are in the early stages of grantwriting and fundraising to lower, or eliminate, the costs for artists to participate in the program.

We are happy to report that we have received some early funding and are able to offer partial and full fellowships.

Residency participation fees will vary, depending on the size of the space and the number of artists sharing each space.  

The cost of a full year’s residency is $60,000.  Artists who apply to take a live/work studio on their own can expect to pay approximately $48,000 per year. Artists who share the spaces will be eligible for partial to full fellowship.

Each residency includes furnished live-work space as well as all utilities and access to Project 14C programming and opportunities, including performance and exhibition opportunities.  Transportation, meals, and art supplies are not included at this time. Although we recognize that these are significant financial amounts for artists, it should be noted that even without a fellowship, the cost is below market rate rent for apartment in downtown Jersey City.


Additional fees

There will be a fee for doing a background and credit check for all applicants. We are currently searching for a company that can do this for a reasonable rate.

For artists bringing pets (which must get prior approval), the building charges a $250 annual fee per pet.

Laundry machines are provided on each floor. They are operated by a third party and small fees are charged per wash and dry.
