COMMUNITY ARTS (CA) DEC PROGRAM INFORMATION:
Broome, Chenango & Otsego Decentralization (DEC) Community Arts (CA) Grants*:
Known as “traditional” or “classic” DEC grants, CA grants provide support for arts and cultural projects to community-based organizations, groups, collectives or artists. Individual artists may apply for a community-based project in partnership with a local non-profit organization. CA support enables emerging artists and organizations to grow professionally and to enhance the cultural vibrancy in communities and neighborhoods where they live and operate. CA grants provide support to develop, foster, promote, enhance and increase community arts that address current cultural needs in Broome, Chenango and Otsego counties.
