Grants of at least $1,000, but no more than $5000, are available for nonprofits in arts and culture in Greene, Columbia, and Schoharie Counties. This funding opportunity is for Performances, Presentations, and Public Programming in the Arts. Priority is for live performing arts projects as well as projects and events that are open to and engage public participation and audiences (ONLY Live, public events). Please note that the Restart NY Regrants funding does not preclude an applicant from also applying for regular Community Arts Grants (the Statewide Community Regrants) project support as long as the projects are discrete and separate. 

***UPDATE***: This grant awards funds of at least $1000, possibly more based on the number of funding requests. Funding will not exceed $5000.
