FY2024 Funding Opportunities!

Opportunity Guidelines are posted below with a short description. The FY2024 Application Manual supplements the information provided in each of the FY2024 Funding Opportunity Guidelines and is a guide to Prequalification, key dates, eligibility questions, and more.

NYSCA’s FY2024 application portal will open on June 1, 2023, and close on July 13, 2023, at 4PM.

Grant Opportunities:

Support for Organizations: Provides flexible general operating and programming funding for non-profit organizations.

All Support for Organizations applicants will use the Support for Organizations application. However, for greater clarity, we have created 2 sets of guidelines: Support for Organizations and Support for Sponsored Organizations.

Support for Artists: Funds creative commissions to individual artists across the state. Applicants must apply through a non-profit fiscal sponsor. NYSCA embraces the rich diversity of artmaking across New York, and applicants from all artistic practices and disciplines are encouraged to apply. 

Support for Targeted Opportunities: (Formerly Special Opportunities) The opportunities provide funding for creative performance residencies, subsidized rehearsal spaces for all performing art forms, and folk arts apprenticeships.  

Support for Regrants and Services: (Formerly Partnerships) Supports regrant and partner organizations across all 62 counties while identifying new opportunities to ensure the greater reach of NYSCA funding and greater access for new applicants. Partnerships cover a range of services.
