Senator Steve Saland (R,I,C – Poughkeepsie) joins the Dutchess County Arts Council in announcing the availability of grants for individual artists and art organizations in Dutchess and Ulster counties.

The Project Grant Program is a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) designed to promote regional community-based arts. 

“Local artists and their endeavors enrich our communities’ offerings,” said Senator Saland.  “This grants program is designed to  promote and support the artistic talent that surround us.” 

Information sessions and application seminars will be held at various locations throughout the two counties from July 13th through August 29th.
