Dedicated to keeping the arts alive and strong in Sullivan County, the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) proudly announces the recipients of the 2022 Sullivan County Arts Grants program.
Twenty-five grants totaling $36,776 were awarded to artists, arts organizations, and community nonprofits to support arts programming throughout the region.
DVAA will present the awards at a public ceremony honoring the community groups and individual artists who have been selected to receive funding in the 2022 grant cycle. The live in-person event will take place on Saturday, May 7, from 12 pm – 1 pm at the Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library located at 479 Broadway, Monticello NY 12701. In addition to the award presentations, the event will feature guest speakers, live performances, and a reception following.
These funds, granted through the New York State Council on the Arts’ Statewide Community Regrant (SCR) program, and administered by DVAA, will support 19 Arts for Sullivan Community Arts projects ($24,076) as well as four Individual Artist Fellowships (two in Visual Arts and two in the Literary Arts with each receiving a $1,000 fellowship) in Sullivan County in 2022.
Additionally, six grants totaling $8,700, were awarded through the Restart NY Live Performance Regrant Fund, to support projects between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022. The initiative, also funded by the New York State Council on the Arts, was established to support the performing artists and return of live performances to New York State following the pandemic.
This year’s projects range from concerts and performances to historical re-enactments, to workshops for young and the young-at-heart.

“The Arts for Sullivan Grants are awarded by a panel of peers carefully selected from the communities that we serve,” explained DVAA Executive Director Ariel Shanberg. “They reflect a vital investment in arts and culture throughout the area and our collective desire to see them continue to grow and thrive.”
Remarking on this year’s awardees, Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther (NYS-100) shared “I want to congratulate all of the 2022 Sullivan County Arts & Heritage grant recipients, as well as those who received grants from the New York State Council on the Arts’ Statewide Community Regrant Program, in partnership with the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA). Arts and culture are part of what makes our area such a great place to live, and DVAA has always been an outstanding partner for artists in our community. This funding will ensure they have the resources they need to continue their great work and to help to usher in the future of the arts in Sullivan County.”
