Who is eligible
NYSCA does not fund...
Each fiscal year, the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) accepts grant applications from non-profit organizations to contract for funding for particular arts, culture or heritage projects or programs. All applications are reviewed by staff and advisory panels and, after the review process is complete and the Council has voted to accept grant recommendations, NYSCA awards cultural services contracts to successful applicants.
NYSCA selects members of the advisory panels from a list of nominees. Each year, NYSCA solicits nominations from NYSCA staff, Council members, current panelists, current grantees, and the general public.
The advisory panels evaluate and rate each grant application according to the Council’s three primary rating criteria:
