ADK Quad-County Statewide Community Regrants (SCR) Program for Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and Hamilton Counties

Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts (ALCA) 2022 SCR Community Arts and Arts Education Grants

The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts (ALCA—a.k.a. the "Arts Center") in beautiful Blue Mountain Lake is the official site for the New York State Statewide Community Regrants (SCR) program—formerly known as "Decentralization (DEC) Grant" program—for the region comprised of these four counties in the northeastern corner of the state, made possible with funding and technical support from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA).

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the application process for the 2022 SCR funding cycle—as with the 2021 DEC-grant funding cycle—has been pushed back from its usual summer-autumn timeframe to an autumn-winter one to help ensure that as many organizations and artists as possible have the opportunity to apply. The application deadline for both the 2022 Community Arts and Arts Education grants, to be submitted via this site, is Monday, January 31, 2022 at 11:59 pm (extended from Friday, December 31, 2021). Applicants are required to read the grant guidelines and attend a "how-to-apply" seminar—most, if not all, of which will be held  via Zoom. The guidelines and the seminar schedule are available for download (as PDFs) on ALCA's website at:
