Grants of up to $5,000 to New York arts and cultural organizations in eligible locations to support general operations and programs. New applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended to encourage the development and expansion of organizations located and providing services in Greene County.

The purpose of this program is to provide general operating or programmatic support to major Greene County organizations that offer quality professional services and programs of benefit to the residents of Greene County. This funding is intended to promote the development, growth, and viability of major cultural organizations.

These areas of concern are particularly encouraged:

  • Applicants who attract audiences with quality cultural events and productions.
  • Applicants who provide cultural services and opportunities to segments of Greene County's residential population that have had relatively little exposure to them in the past.
  • Applicants who provide diversified, "fresh" arts programming to the community.
  • Applicants who present "under-exposed" art forms, thereby exposing their community to a more global sense of art.
  • Applicants who create opportunities for Greene County artists whose talents have been under-utilized within that agency or geographic area.
  • Collaborative projects of two or more organizations.
