Individual Artists Grant Guidelines and Application

Individual Artist Grant Guidelines 2021

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.

The Arts Council for Wyoming County encourages artists to apply for project funding through an initiative specifically designed for artists to create new work in their own communities. This opportunity is designed to increase support for artist-initiated activity and highlight the role of artists as important members of the community. This grant supports and enables artists to grow professionally and to enhance the cultural climate in Wyoming County. An essential element of this funding is a community engagement component. The project must engage a segment of the community through a public program, such as an exhibition or performance that is open to the public, and/or the inclusion of community involvement in the development and creative processes of the artists’ project. The program looks for proposals of high artistic merit and asks that the artist consider the unique characteristics of Wyoming County when developing the project. Visual, literary, media, and performing artists may apply.


2021 Final Reports are due no later than 30 days after the completion of the project. All reports must be submitted by January 29, 2021.
