Community Arts Grants are made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program (SCR), a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). Founded in 1977, the SCR program was developed by NYSCA to ensure that cultural funding reaches every part of the state. These grants have since become one of NYSCA’s most effective means of making arts support available to geographically, economically, and ethnically diverse segments of the state’s population. Through SCR regrant funding, SCR sites such as the Arts Council for Wyoming County provide project support to a wide range of professional, vocational and educational arts and culture in their respective communities including the creation of new work by individual artists. Grants can prioritize program quality over quantity of viewers/participants.
