Performing Arts Fund

The Saratoga Arts Performing Arts Fund is a one time regrant program made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). The initiative is intended to support individual artists and organizations who are creating live art that is accessible to the communities that surround them.

Funding for this program is project based. All projects must have an element of live art open to the general public, to be attended in person. All projects must be delivered between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022. Retroactive funding is available. Applicants can request between $500 and $4,000.

For more information please read the guidelines at the link below. All questions should be directed to Charlie Owens (

Applicants are encouraged to reach out to Charlie Owens (, (518) 584-4132) who oversees regrant programs at Saratoga Arts before submitting an application.

Charlie is available for one on one discussions (in person, via zoom, or on the phone) at any point in your application process and happy to review applications before final submission.

Important Dates

Applications to the Performing Arts Fund will be accepted on a rolling basis. Unlike other regrant opportunities Saratoga Arts offers, applications will be reviewed several times throughout the year as they are received and until the funds are exhausted.

A panel selected by the Saratoga Arts staff will hold no less than three deliberation meetings between January 2022 and June 2022, unless funding is exhausted and distributed before three meetings are convened.

We encourage applicants to submit their applications as soon as possible. A cut off for each panel deliberation will be announced at least two weeks in advance each meeting to give applicants a clear understanding of when a determination on their application would occur.

Applications can be for retroactive funding. Projects that occurred on or after July 1, 2021 can receive funding after they have been completed but the applicant must outline a loss or other need for funding in their budget.

All projects, whether being funded in advance or retroactively, must be completed by June 30, 2022.
