*We are proud to manage the funding opportunities for Nassau and Suffolk-based arts organizations (not-for-profit), individual artist or teaching artist with an in-school project. NYSCA Decentralization grants are offered by New York State Council on the Arts.
In 1977, the New York State Council of the Arts (NYSCA) developed the Decentralization program in response to a state legislative mandate that encouraged the administration and awarding of grant money at a local level. Through this program, non-profit organizations and individual artists may apply annually for grants to help strengthen the arts and cultural programs in their communities. It is the intention of New York State Council on the Arts that these funds, regranted through Decentralization, provide developmental support to those organizations exhibiting quality programming, community support, and professionalism.
In Suffolk and Nassau counties, Long Island Decentralization is administered by the Huntington Arts Council. Funding decisions are made by a series of panels comprised of local artists, community leaders, and individuals from throughout the region. All award recommendations are required to be voted on by the Board of Directors of the Huntington Arts Council, Inc.
