Creative Curricula is a local arts-in-education funding program, supported by NYSCA’s Local Capacity Building Initiative. The program makes matching grants to Manhattan schools working with cultural organizations or individual teaching artists. Creative Curricula supports projects that integrate arts and non-arts subjects in Pre-K through High School classrooms. [Deadline for 2009-10 has passed]
The Fund for Creative Communities DEADLINE 9-22-09
Supported by NYSCA’s Decentralization Program for Manhattan, The Fund for Creative Communities (The Fund) is designed to augment the financial resources of small to midsize nonprofit, community-based organizations that provide local, high-quality arts programs. Grants of up to $5,000 are awarded to organizations for arts projects with a significant public component and a direct impact on one of Manhattan’s diverse communities.
Manhattan Community Arts Fund DEADLINE 9-22-09
DCA and the office of the Manhattan Borough President provide the funding for the Manhattan Community Arts Fund (MCAF) grant, which supports local arts organizations and artists that have little access to other government funding sources. Both individual artists and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply. The goal of this program is to prepare applicants to apply for and obtain public funds while enabling grant recipients to eventually leverage financial support from other sectors.
