Decentralization
Grant Opportunities for Nonprofit Organizations and Artists

Decentralization (DEC) Grants are administered by the Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester with support from the New York State Council on the Arts, Governor Andrew Cuomo, and the New York State Legislature.

Two types of DEC Grants are available for 2014:

An individual artist or collective may apply for DEC funds under the fiscal sponsorship of a community-based nonprofit. Specific requirements apply.
  • DEC Arts Education grants support the role that local cultural organizations and/or individual artists play in engaging K-12 public school students in rich artistic learning experiences. These grants are designed to support arts education projects in K-12 school settings. Specific requirements apply.
