Grants for Arts Programs (GAP) are for not-for-profit organizations. Funds are awarded throughout the County to libraries, arts organizations, towns, villages, community centers and the like for professional arts and cultural projects. (Individual artists can apply to "GAP" by finding a not-for-profit organization to sponsor their event.)
This program is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, celebrating 50 years of building strong, creative communities in New York State's 62 counties.
Funded projects must be open to and promoted to the general public, be handicapped accessible and take place in calendar year for which funding is sought.
The next round of funding will be for 2014 with applications due on Friday, October 4, 2013.
(Note - these are "old" 2013 grant forms. These are basically the same as the 2014 forms will be so you can definitely learn about the grant from them. The 2014 forms will be on this site by May 1, 2013.)
