The application portal for Statewide Community Regrants is opening soon!

The Statewide Community Regrants (SCR, formerly known as Decentralization or DEC) is a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) administered by CNY Arts for Cortland, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, and Oswego counties. The three funding categories of SRC include the Community Arts Grant (CAG), Individual Artist Commission (IAC), and the Arts Education Grant (AEG).

Community-focused arts and cultural projects occurring between January 1 and December 31, 2022 are eligible for up to $5,000.00 in grant funding. Program priorities this year include projects that employ artists from historically excluded and otherwise underserved communities, especially those marginalized on race, geographic location, and ethnicity; projects that engage a core audience from such communities; and projects that prioritize grant funds for artist fees and compensation.

For more information on eligibility requirements, application help, or other grant opportunities, please contact the Regrants Program Officer, Brian Lee at
