Activities may include workshops, exhibits, performances, concerts, festivals, screenings, readings, cultural programming, artist-­initiated projects, and hands on arts workshops both in and out of school in Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster counties.

The deadline to apply is November 15, 2017. Information sessions begin September 11 .

This is a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), and is designed to support community-based arts activities in an effort to make quality arts programming available and to support local cultural expression.

There are three distinct grant programs:

PROJECT GRANTS support arts and cultural activities of nonprofit organizations, community groups and individual artists, including work in theater, dance, music, film, video, literature, visual arts, traditional arts, historical and cultural activities, as well as the use of libraries and community-based organizations as venues for the arts. Grant requests may range from $500 – $5,000.

The INDIVIDUAL ARTIST COMMISSION is a $2,500 grant towards the creation of new work that engages a particular community in the artist’s creative process.

The ARTS LEARNING GRANT funds up to $5,000 for sequential, skill-based workshops focused on the arts and artistic process. Projects can take place in-school during the school day or in after-school and community-based settings for groups of any age. Artists, cultural groups and nonprofit organizations may apply.

Information sessions will be held throughout the region for potential applicants to gain an understanding of this grant opportunity. All new applicants should plan on attending one.


If you are unable to attend any of the sessions, and still wish to apply, you must contact the AMH Grants Team well in advance of the deadline, at 845.454.3222 or
