Grants Range: $1,000 - $5,000

Supported by the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program

Community Arts (CA) supports local arts projects and activities that enable Bronx communities to experience and engage with the performing, literary, media, and visual arts. All projects must be community based and open to the general public. Local non-profit organizations may apply directly to this program; individual artists or collectives must apply either through a Bronx-based fiscal sponsor, or in partnership with a community-based non-profit organization based in the Bronx. Grants range from $1,000 to $5,000.
