Community Arts (CA) Grants: Known as “traditional” or “classic” Decentralization (DEC) Grants, CA grants provide support for arts and cultural projects to community-based organizations, groups, collectives, or individual artists. Individual artists must apply for a CA grant for a community-based project in partnership with a local nonprofit 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 work. CA grants provide support to develop, foster, promote, enhance, and increase community arts that address current cultural needs in Broome County.
Arts Education (AE) Grants: AE grants offer two funding categories: (1) K-12 In-School Projects and (2) After-School & Community-Based Learning Projects. Funds can support arts education projects that take place in-school during the school day and/or in after-school and community-based settings for youth and/or senior learners. Emphasis is placed on the depth and quality of the creative process through which participants learn about the arts. Projects must focus on the exploration of art and the artistic process. Inter-curricular collaboration for in-school projects is encouraged but not required.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED!
