CHENANGO COUNTY – The Chenango Arts Council is pleased to announce continued funding for cultural initiatives in Broome, Chenango and Otsego counties. $99,400 in funding is available for grants up to $5,000 through the 2014 Decentralization (DEC) Program. DEC offers support for Community Arts (CA) grants and Arts Education (AE) 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 non-profit organization. CA support enables emerging artists and organizations to grow professionally and to enhance the cultural vibrancy in communities and neighborhoods where they live and operate. CA grants provide support to develop, foster, promote, enhance and increase community arts that address current cultural needs in Broome, Chenango and Otsego counties.
