This funding opportunity will focus on reviving in-person performance on a local level through regrant support provided to current Statewide Community Regrant (SCR) partners, formerly known as DEC or Decentralization sites.
In-person performing arts events and activities will take priority for this fund. Performing arts activities include – but are not limited to – music, dance, and theatre. If funding is still available once all qualified performing arts proposals have been funded, other in-person public arts-based activities and events will be considered for funding.
These grants are awarded for in-person public performances and events occurring between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022 in Erie and Niagara counties.
Requests between the amounts of $500 and $5,000 can be submitted. Due to the limited amount of funding available, we will only accept one proposal per applicant.
