FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
September 17, 2014

The Chenango Arts Council is pleased to announce continued funding for the Grants For Teachers Program.  The primary purpose of the Grants for Teachers Program is to provide funding directly to classroom teachers responsible for achieving New York State Education Department Learning Standards for the Arts or Learning Standards for English Language Arts. 

To the extent possible, this program will provide grants that directly meet the needs of teachers with a minimum of “red tape” and a maximum of flexibility. As a result, the types of projects eligible for funding are limited only to the imagination, invention and creativity of the applicant. Grant requests may not exceed $500.  All teachers currently employed by a school district in Chenango County, or working in a public or private school in Chenango County, grades Pre-K-12, are eligible to apply.  The deadline is December 2, 2014 for opportunities through December 31, 2015.
