2022 Community Arts Grants Guidelines
We are always here to help with grant applications.
In accordance with its mandate from the State Legislature to encourage participation in the grants decision-making process at the county and regional level, the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) inaugurated the Statewide Community Regrant Program (formerly known as Decentralization) in 1977 for the redistribution of public funds. This program enables selected local arts councils, county governments, or regional advisory boards to regrant state funds for arts events and cultural development within their communities.
Since 1984, Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) has worked with NYSCA as the SCR Program site in Sullivan County, for the purpose of administering Arts for Sullivan funding for artists, art organizations, cultural and heritage groups. The Arts for Sullivan SCR Program is largely credited for establishing Sullivan County’s cultural life as we know it today––relevant, vibrant, and healthy.
