The Grants for Teachers Program provides up to $500 to K-12 teachers in Chenango County who find innovative ways to integrate the arts into the regular school curriculum through projects that are not covered by the school budget. Applicants do not have to be “art” teachers.

Projects eligible for funding are limited only to the imagination, invention and creativity of the applicant. Grant requests may not exceed $500. Teachers currently employed by a public or private school in Chenango County, grades Pre-K – 12, are eligible to apply. Multiple teachers from a single school or grade may apply.  The maximum grant award is $500 per teacher. 

The Grants for Teachers Program is made possible with funding from Golden Artist Colors, Walmart, ACCO Brands, Community Bank, and Friends of the Arts Council.

The Broome, Chenango & Otsego County Decentralization Program is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, with support from Governor Cuomo and the NYS Legislature. Additional support for Broome County provided by the Stewart W. and Willma C. Hoyt Foundation.
