| Grant Award Amounts
The Council’s overall funding is determined annually during the State's budgeting process and approval by the NYS Legislature. There is no assurance that the Council’s funding awards will remain the same over an annual or multi-year term.
Previous grant funding from the Council does not guarantee support in any succeeding year, and past grant funding amounts are not indicative of future funding levels.
The Council does not make grants in amounts less than $2,500, nor does it make grants that would constitute the sole source of financial support for an organization.
The Council rarely funds more than 50% of a project's entire budget, and in the case of requests for general support, the Council rarely funds more than 25% of an organization's budget.
Single-year and Multi-year Grants
Some Council grants are awarded on a single-year basis, and some grants are awarded on a multi-year basis and are renewable for up to five years.
Organizations with a continuing multi-year grant or grants must register each of those grants for each year they are in effect. Failure to register a continuing multi-year grant will result in cancellation of the grant.
Multi-year support is awarded when the panel, staff, and Council agree that a similar level of service or activity will be sustained by the applicant organization over successive years. Multi-year grants represent the Council's agreement to offer successive years of support without requiring a full application and review of the grantee in the succeeding years. Annually, multi-year grantees are required to: update the Organizational Information Profile, register for continued multi-year support, notify Council staff of their programming, activities and any major institutional changes, and file annual final reports.
