Winfield has advanced to the next round of a grant contest that could award Island Park Productions $25,000 to stage a live music series here next summer.

The Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation announced the top 25 finalists competing for a 2020 Levitt AMP Grant Award on Thursday. Finalists were chosen based on online voting from the public.

In the next step, the Levitt Foundation will review the applications and award up to 15 matching grants of $25,000 to each winner. 

The Levitt AMP Grant Awards is a matching grant opportunity created by the Levitt Foundation to serve small to mid-sized towns and cities with populations up to 400,000. Grant recipients will use the funds to produce their own Levitt AMP Music Series — a free, outdoor concert series featuring a diverse lineup of professional musicians. The winners will be announced Dec. 20.
