The 2020 Adirondack Quad-County Decentralization Grant Program for Art and Cultural Programs has been announced for Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and Hamilton Counties.
The Decentralization Program was developed to help ensure that New York State’s cultural funding reaches every part of the state. Decentralization funds are regranted locally by regional arts agencies at the invitation of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA).
These decentralization sites are charged as advocates and catalysts for arts and cultural development at the local level and provide a wide range of multi-arts programming and services for local communities, artists, and small organizations.
Decentralization regrant funding provides project support to a wide-range of professional, vocational, and educational arts and culture in their respective communities. The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts in Blue Mountain Lake is the decentralization site for the Adirondack Quad-County region, or Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and Hamilton Counties.
The 2020 grant guidelines, including information on how to apply can be found online. The application deadline for 2020 funding is Monday, September 16, 2019 at 6 pm. For more information about grant opportunities, contact Chelsea Provost at [email protected] or (518) 352-7715.
