Grant Range: Up to $1,500
Supported by the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program
Arts on the Block (AB) is a grassroots initiative designed to provide small grants of up to $750 specifically for artist fees for arts activities at block parties and single block festivals. (Examples include DJs, spoken word artists, musicians, singers, dancers, etc., or other artists whose activities will enhance block party attendance.) This initiative aims to support small local organizations and block associations to increase attendance at their events. Preference will be given to smaller organizations and those who have not applied for a grant from BCA in the past.
