Submissions now open for DVAA grants


SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY — Each year, the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA), the Arts Council for Sullivan County, administers grants to Sullivan County cultural groups and individual artists. DVAA’s Arts for Sullivan grant application portal will go live September 13 and will remain open until November 1. This year, the DVAA will administer over $25,000 in regrant funds from the New York State Council on the Arts for community arts and individual artist fellowships in the disciplines of sculpture and poetry.

The Arts for Sullivan Community Arts grants are for nonprofit arts, cultural and heritage groups that wish to create or present year-round programming in Sullivan County. Projects can include theatre, music, dance, the literary arts, folklore, installation and visual arts, among others.

All applications and supporting documents must be submitted to its online submission platform, www.submitta ble.com. The deadline for 2020 applications is Thursday, November 1 at 11:59 p.m. (EST).

A series of free grant information workshops will be hosted by DVAA to assist with effective grant writing, creating a budget, creating a cohesive narrative, generating ideas and networking with other artists and organizations. Registration is required and new applicants must attend one workshop. Workshop times and locations are listed below.

Applications, guidelines, and grant information workshop registration are available at www.delawarevalleyartsalliance.org/grants.

Artists and groups may also schedule an in-person meeting to discuss their grant at DVAA offices. For more information, contact the grants coordinator, Frankie, at 845/252-7576 during office hours on Thursdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or visit the website.
