Statewide Community Regrant Partners
At the core of our mission to create vibrant arts communities is our work with our Statewide Community Regrant Partners (SCR). NYSCA initiates funding partnerships with regional arts councils and cultural organizations, enabling us to reach all 62 state counties. The local grant making organizations providing support in a wide range of arts disciplines are referred to as Statewide Community Regrant Partners. Please refer to the list below to find the partner serving your area.

To provide more opportunities for artists and arts organizations, NYSCA partners with select grantees to administer NYSCA funding in the form of regrants. These grants serve individual artists, media arts practitioners, small theatres, museum collections, literary organizations, historic sites and museums and represent a variety of goals, including professional development, historic preservation, and the creation of new work.
First launched in 1985, the NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship has provided more than $30 million in unrestricted cash grants to artists in 15 disciplines at critical stages in their creative development. Funds are unrestricted, and can be used in any manner the artists deem necessary to further their careers.
The extensive list of past awardees includes the winners of five Academy Awards, five Tony Awards, eight Pulitzer Prizes, two National Book Awards, and 15 MacArthur ''Genius'' Fellowships.
