Program Guidelines

NYSCA's Program Guidelines contain vital information about applying for NYSCA funding, including detailed descriptions of funding categories and eligibility and application questions. Please access the guidelines in PDF format below, and visit Programs Overview for more information.

PLEASE NOTE:

These program guidelines have been developed for FY2020 and may contain clarifications or substantive changes from the prior funding year. Applicants should carefully review ALL INSTRUCTIONS. NYSCA’s funding recommendations each year are determined by available funds, the volume of applications, and the NYSCA review process, including review by a peer panel. Past funding is neither a factor considered by the review panel nor a guarantee of future funding.
