Not-for-profit groups and municipalities have been invited to attend one of two free information sessions on Technical Assistance Grants (TAG), a grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and the Preservation League.
The League’s Manager of Technical & Grant Programs, Frances Gubler, will explain the requirements of the grants, the process of applying, and discuss some successful previous applicants. There is no cost to attend but reservations are required.
The meetings are slated for Thursday, August 9 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Stanford Historical Society / Attlebury Schoolhouse, 6917 Route 82, Stanfordville; and Tuesday, August 14 from 6 to 8 pm at the Old Stone Fort, 145 Fort Road, Schoharie.
A total of $55,062 is available in this funding round. The total includes $45,062 from NYSCA and $10,000 for the TAG program from the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area/Hudson River Valley Greenway for projects in the Heritage Area.
Grant amounts will not exceed $3,000 and the total cost of the applicant’s project may not exceed $3,500. Each applicant must provide $500 toward the total project cost.
Guidelines for grants are posted on the League’s website. Prospective applicants must discuss proposed projects with Preservation League staff before receiving an application.
The New York State Council on the Arts and Preservation League of New York State launched the Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) program in 2012 to support discrete projects that preserve New York State’s cultural and historic resources.
