The Arts Center of the Capital Region offers grant opportunities for individual artists

The 2015 DEC Grants process for individual artists, artists in schools and arts organizations is now closed. Applications for 2016 DEC grant funding will be available in September. 

2015 Grant Recipients

The Arts Center of the Capital Region is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2015 Community Arts, Arts in Education, and Individual Artist Commission DEC Grants.  Each year The Arts Center delivers grants to local individual artists and arts organizations to create high quality arts and culture programs that engage the communities within Albany, Rensselaer and Schenectady Counties.

The Capital District is a vibrant community where the value of the arts is evident. This year over 100 grant applications were received, nearly three times the number submitted in 2014. This testifies to the creativity of Capital Region community members and the desire to express the arts in all its forms and share it with others.

This year’s awards total nearly $75,000 and were granted to 25 artists and organizations. The Arts Center is proud to be able to provide this valuable resource through a partnership with the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) re-grant program. The winners will utilize funding to grow professionally and to enhance the cultural climate in communities and neighborhoods in our region.
