Grant Panelists Needed
COULD YOU BE A GRANTS PANELIST?
CNY Arts is looking for panelists for its upcoming grant cycles. Our goal as a regranter is to empower local decision-making for the distribution of arts and cultural funding that comes from Onondaga County and New York State.
We do this by awarding grants to individual and organization applicants via an independent panel process. Panelists delve into the artistic and cultural merit, community impact, and feasibility of each proposal with a goal of maximizing benefit and accessibility to our region’s residents.
Our panels are made up of volunteers from the community who have a variety of backgrounds and perspectives plus experience in arts and cultural fields, project planning, program coordination, and/or business management.
CNY Arts provides guidance and coordination to support panelists as they review applications, but the funding decisions are made solely by the panels, using a thorough, thoughtful, and objective group process.
