Welcome to the Chenango Arts Council. We believe the arts build a strong and vibrant local community. That's why we support the growth and development of local arts through grants to artists and organizations, offer life long learning and experiences for residents and artists, and provide a beautiful venue for many types of events.

Previously known as the Chenango County Council of the Arts, we are now entering our 40th year as a cultural service provider located in Norwich, NY. 
In 2014, the Council allocated $112,500 in cultural funding to Broome, Chenango and Otsego County non profit organizations, artists and schools.  In 2015, we'll allocate $115,860!  
Visit the Grants tab above for information on Grants for Teachers and Decentralization Arts Education & Community Arts grant opportunities for 2015, including this year's recipients, and visit all areas of our website to find out more about other programs and services!

With your help, we can continue to provide opportunities for the artists and art lovers of today and tomorrow alike.
