The award is the result of a successful Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) Initiatives Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) for fiscal year 2018-2019.
NYSCA also supported the Depot Theatre with a multi-year general-operating support grant of $15,000 per year for each 2018 and 2019. In 2017 the Depot Theatre replaced the seating and carpeting in its 134-seat theatre, which was funded in-part by a facilities program grant from NYSCA.
The new funding, a workforce development grant, is expected to allow the theatre to add a full time staff position. The new associate director/company manager is expected to be responsible for coordinating administrative activities related to human resources and company management, finance and development.
