Arts Council to administer DEC program for Otsego, too

NORWICH – A state grant program for arts and cultural activities administered by the Chenango County Council of the Arts now includes three counties – Chenango, Broome and Otsego.

The New York State Council on the Arts offers the grant monies through its Decentralization (DEC) program, which seeks to foster arts-related activities in rural areas by giving funding to non-profit organizations. The Chenango Arts Council has administered the DEC program locally since 1986. In 2003, the Norwich-based organization began running the same program for Broome County. Now, for the 2011 funding cycle, they’ve added Otsego County to their roster.



“NYSCA is moving toward a regionalization model for this program,” stated CCCA Development Coordinator Michelle Connelly. “We were pleased to be invited by NYSCA to administer DEC in Otsego County as well.”
