PLEASE NOTE: Until New York State has more information regarding what the Federal Government will be providing in terms of relief funding to states and how that will impact the NYS budget, agencies will not be advancing REDC funding requests for review.
The Regional Economic Development Council initiative (REDC) is a key component of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's transformative approach to State investment and economic development. NYSCA is one of 11 agencies participating in 30 programs to build New York State through strategic, competitive grantmaking.
NYSCA Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) Initiative funding is available for projects designed to enhance and transform the cultural and economic vitality of New York State communities through the arts and culture, addressing REDC initiative priorities including placemaking and workforce development.
Arts and culture activities enrich and strengthen community, civic and social life in New York State. Successful proposals will demonstrate significant economic and community development impact that positions arts and culture at the core of local economic development and revitalization efforts.
