Local Arts Funding
|Local Arts Funding
To support local decision making in public arts funding, NYSCA established funding partnerships with arts and cultural organizations covering every county across the state.
The local grant making organizations providing support in a wide range of arts disciplines are referred to as Decentralization (DEC) sites. Please refer to this list to find the site serving your area.
The Decentralization sites award funds through a formal application process and review proposals using a local peer panel process. DEC grants range up to a maximum of $5,000, though awards are typically in the range of $1000 - $2,500. The application deadlines are set by each DEC site, so check your local site for details.
Organizations may not apply for NYSCA support and for DEC support in the same year.
