The New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and the Preservation League of NYS have announced pre-applications are now open for the 2022 Technical Assistance Grants, with additional support from the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area.
Technical Assistance Grants (TAG) are available to eligible NYS nonprofits and municipalities. This program provides support for consulting projects that preserve New York State’s cultural and historic resources. The grants will support professional services of architects, engineers, and other design and preservation professionals.
Grants of up to $4,000, with a required 20% project cost match from each applicant, are available to nonprofit groups and municipalities that own or have a long-term lease on buildings that house historic sites, museums, arts facilities, and other important institutions that serve an arts or cultural purpose and are open to the public.
The League will host a webinar and a series of drop-in help sessions via Zoom for all interested applicants to learn more before submitting their applications. Pre-applications must be submitted by Monday, October 17th. Full program details, grant guidelines, and links to register for the Zoom sessions can be found online.
