Community Arts Grants @ Saratoga Arts
For decades, Saratoga Arts has been proud to serve this region as a New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) decentralization regrant site. Over one million dollars in funding has been distributed to arts projects in Fulton, Montgomery and Saratoga counties though our program. We accept applications in the spring of each year for projects designed for the following year.
Projects that are open to the community they serve and allow the citizens of that community to interact directly with art can apply for Community Arts Grants of up to $5,000 to execute their project. Projects myst be accessible to all and creatively connect community and art.
Projects that focus on educating a closed group of learners, either in school or in a community based setting, can apply for an Arts Education Grant of up to $3,000. These projects consist of "hands on" learning in at least 3 separate sessions to ensure that learners, of any age have exposure to art in a new way.
Projects that center on the professional growth of an individual artist may be eligible for an Individual Artist Grant of $2,500. These funs can be used for projects of a sole artist or a lead artist in a collaborative art form. While the community doesn't have to directly participare in the creation of the project, it does need to be presented or made available to the public.
Saratoga Arts' programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
