Arts Education Grant

Arts Education Grants are designed to assist schools in developing and implementing visual and performing arts residencies. 

This program is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), celebrating 50 years of building strong, creative communities in New York State's 62 counties. The Arts Education grant is part of NYSCA's Decentralization program, along with our Grants for Arts Programs (GAP) and our Artist in Community Grant. The Decentralization program is administered in Tompkins County by the Community Arts Partnership.

The grant deadline for projects occurring in the 2017 calendar year will be in November 2016. 

(The forms below are for reference until the 2017 guidelines are posted in the summer of 2016.)
