The New York State Cultural Data Project
(New York State CDP) is a powerful online management tool designed to strengthen arts and
cultural organizations.  Arts and cultural organizations enter financial, programmatic and
operational data into a standardized online form and can then use the CDP to produce a
variety of reports designed to help increase management capacity, identify strengths and
challenges and inform decision-making. They can also generate reports to be included as
part of the application processes to participating grantmakers.

This emerging national standard enables participating organizations to track trends and
benchmark their progress through powerful reporting tools, empowers researchers and
advocates with information to make the case for arts and culture, and equips funders with data
to plan and evaluate grant-making activities more effectively.
