 The Putnam Arts Council will be administering two grant opportunities:

Arts Alive Recover NY Regrant:

The Arts Alive Recover NY Regrant Opportunity is being offered by the New York State Council on the Arts through the Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link Grant Program.  This “Mini” Restart NY Regrant is targeted to boost the local arts sectors, both artists and groups, that are planning live public events including performances, exhibitions, festivals, showings, etc.  While the performing arts are prioritized, any events with a public component are eligible for this “mini” round of Restart NY Regrant funding.  60% of the grant monies must be allocated to artist fees.  All projects must take place in Putnam County, NY.  Please contact the grants coordinator at  grants@putnamartscouncil.com for a copy of the guidelines and an application.

Organizations can apply for both The Arts Alive Recover NY Regrant and/or our regular SCR Arts Link Grant Program project support as long as Projects and Expenses do not overlap.  The project period for the Recover NY Mini Grant is September 2021 – June 2022.  We hope our constituents will take advantage of this opportunity to “recover” from the devasting losses caused by COVID-19 and rebuild their art “live” venues.  The guidelines and application are available by calling the Putnam Arts Council at 845.803.8622 or emailing  to  joyce@putnamartscouncil.com   Grant deadline is  Wednesday, December 17, no later than 5pm.

Arts Link Community Regrant Program:

Call to artists and arts organizations for high quality arts projects that are open to the public and take place in 2022.  Interested artists and/or arts organizations and community non-profit presenters are invited to view our grant
guidelines at www.putnamartscouncil.com.  This online application has a deadline of 4pm on Friday, November 19 (online). All applicants are required to attend an informational seminar via zoom – see guidelines for dates/times or call the Arts Council at 845.803.8622.

These grants are made possible with public funds from Putnam County and/or with support from the NYS Council on the Arts with support from the Governor’s office and the NYS Legislature.
