The Chenango Arts Council recently announced continued funding for cultural initiatives in Broome, Chenango and Otsego counties. Funding is available for grants up to $5,000 through the 2014 Decentralization Program. DEC offers support for Community Arts grants and Arts Education grants.
CA grants provide support for arts and cultural projects to community-based organizations, groups, collectives or artists. Individual artists may apply for a community-based project in partnership with a local nonprofit organization.
AE grants support the role that local cultural organizations and/or individual artists play in engaging public school students in rich artistic learning experiences. AE funds are designed to support new or first-time arts education projects in K-12 school settings. Re-grant funds are directed to cultural organizations and/or artists to work in partnership with public schools to use each other’s resources. Schools and teachers may not apply directly for AE fund.
The deadline for AE grant application is 5 p.m. Dec. 11, and for CA grants, 5 p.m. Jan. 8. Opportunities are for projects through Dec. 31, 2014. Visit www.chenangoarts.org for current guidelines and application form, or send an email at email@example.com to request a copy. Notification of intent to apply is required.
Arts Council staff is available for assistance. Nominations for grant review panelists are accepted on an o-going basis. Call 336-2787 for more information.
