Statewide Community Regrants (SCR) 2023 Cycle


The application window for the 2023 Statewide Community Regrant (SCR) Community Arts and Arts Education grant cycle, covering arts projects occurring between January 1, 2023 and March 31, 2024, will open this autumn several weeks in advance of the application deadline, which will most likely occur in January 2023. Once this window closes following the application dedaline, much of the information on the four pages of this website's grants section also will be relevant to future cycles. To learn more about what kind of projects are eligible, applying for current or future grants, or any other aspects of the SCR program that you may have questions about, please contact ALCA’s NYS Grant Coordinator Fred Balzac by emailing him at or calling 518-588-7275. 




Grant Guidelines

Not sure how to get started applying for a Statewide Community Regrant (SCR) grant? Reviewing the 2022 guidelines as presented on this website (see the links below) can give you a good idea of what’s involved in the 2023-cycle application process for the category that applies to your grant program—Community Arts and/or Arts Education—as guidelines tend to be very similar from year to year. Reviewing the SCR guidelines is also a prerequisite to applying. If you need help determining which program you are eligible for, please contact Grant Coordinator Fred Balzac

Grant-Application "How-to" Seminars

The SCR application process typically begins with prospective applicants attending one of the many "how-to-apply" informational seminars scheduled throughout the Quad-County service area of Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and Hamilton counties. The Arts Center offers these free seminars to prospective applicants, with the aim of making the SCR application process as simple and user-friendly as possible.

At these seminars the grant coordinator will walk attendees through the guidelines, including by highlighting changes from the previous year, especially for any past attendees/grantees present; preview the application form itself; answer participant questions; and provide feedback and technical assistance on the projects attendees have in mind or already are in the process of developing.

To receive funding, applicants are required to attend one of these seminars before completing the application. In addition to being free, the seminars are open to the general public. All applicants (new and returning) must attend a seminar or arrange for a consultation with the grant coordinator. Please note: if the contact person for the application, the writer of the grant, and/or the project coordinator are different persons, they all must attend the same seminar.

Prospective applicants must register for the seminars in advance by contacting Grant Coordinator Fred Balzac by email at fred@adirondackarts.orgBecause of the COVID-19 pandemic, all seminars for the 2021 and 2022 application cycles were held online via Zoom. Seminars for the 2023 cycle, dates for which are to be determined, will cover both the SCR Arts Education and Community Arts grant opportunities. Please click on the tab below to see the seminar schedule for the 2022 cycle. To register for a seminar once the 2023 schedule is available, please email Fred directly at the address given above. In the absence of any in-person seminars, prospective applicants who have any difficulty with attending an online seminar via Zoom should contact him regarding scheduling a phone consultation.
