Community Art Grants guidelines and application forms

This Decentralization Program is made possible in part with funds from New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature administered in Wyoming County by the Arts Council for Wyoming County.

Community Arts grants provide support to community-based organizations, groups, collectives or artists for arts and cultural projects. It enables emerging artists and organizations to grow professionally and to enhance the cultural climate in communities and neighborhoods where they live and work. This grant is not difficult to write! It only requires planning and organization.  ACWC is eager for you to write a successful proposal. Do not hesitate to contact us with questions.

Community Arts grants may include, but are not limited to: exhibitions, workshop series, performances (all disciplines), festivals, screenings or readings. All funded projects in this category must be community based and open to the general public.

This is a competitive process.  All applications are extensively evaluated according to the criteria and priorities.  Through Community Arts Grants, the Arts Council for Wyoming County, NYSCA and the NYS Legislature hope to expand, enhance, and increase arts and cultural programs in our community.
