Art on the Rail Trail is one of the community art projects that was funded by this program this year.

The Arts Center of the Capital Region has an info session November 7 to talk about how people can apply for up to $5,000 for community art projects. Blurbage:

Community Arts Grants are available in Albany, Rensselaer and Schenectady Counties through a competitive re-grant program administered by The Arts Center of the Capital Region (ACCR). Funds are provided on a statewide basis through the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) Decentralization (DEC) Program to develop high quality arts projects and programming including performing, literary, media, and visual arts and to contribute to region's communities by providing opportunities for the public to experience and engage with the arts. Emphasis is placed on the quality and artistic merit of proposed projects and the depth and authenticity of audience experience, participation and engagement.

Here's the list of local projects who got money for this year.

Be sure to check out the guidelines for applying. This online presentation is a quick trip through the info.

The meeting at the Arts Center in downtown Troy is Wednesday, November 7 at 6 pm.

The intent-to-apply deadline for the grants is November 18, and the final application deadline is December 2.
