Blue Mountain Lake, NY –  The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts (ALCA) is pleased to announce that the arts non-profit received $415,500 for calendar year 2024 from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). Of that amount, $19,000 will go to funding projects by two individual artists, and $285,000 will be distributed by ALCA throughout the Quad-County region of Hamilton, Franklin, Clinton, and Essex counties through the Statewide Community Regrants (SCR) program to support 2024 arts programming. Grants are project-based, community-focused, and can represent any artistic discipline.

Of the remaining award amounts, $85,500 will support administrative costs of the SCR program, $25,000 will support ALCA operating expenses through a Support for Organizations grant, and $1,000 will go to the Arts Center to administer the Support for Artists grants. Recipients of these grants are visual artist, Susan Hoffer, for her project, “Can Art Subvert Narratives in the Media: Rural Voices Rising,” and theatre artist, Hannah Eakin, for her project, “Jane Eyre, A New Musical.”

Through the 2024 SCR program, ALCA is offering three grant opportunities to its funding region of Hamilton, Franklin, Clinton, and Essex counties, as well as Tribal Nations and unincorporated collectives. The Individual Artist Grant funds the creation of new work within a community setting; the Arts Education Grant funds creative learning experiences; and the Community Arts Grant supports public arts programming and fosters creative communities.

Grants are open to artists, arts organizations, 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, and government entities.

Programs of the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
