FY2017 Guidelines Now Available

NYSCA's FY2017 program guidelines are now available on our website. Please click here to review this year's guidelines. The application timeline will be announced shortly. 

All organizations must be successfully prequalified in Grants Gateway prior to the close of the application period in order to be eligible for funding consideration. If your organization is not currently prequalified with NY State or if your document vault has expired, you are strongly urged to comply with this important State regulation well before the application deadline.  NYSCA staff time is limited and the agency cannot be held responsible for its failure to perform a review of applicants’ vaults within 10 days of the application deadline.

For more information about Grants Gateway and Prequalification, please visit the Grants Gateway website (http://www.grantsreform.ny.gov/Grantees) or contact the Grants Reform Team at: grantsreform@its.ny.gov. The Grants Reform help desk/hotline can be reached at (518) 474-5595
