Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts

The New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) State and Local Partnership Division administers an annual re-grant program that helps to ensure access to arts and culture in each of the 62 counties of New York State.

ADK Quad-County Cultural Arts Grants are available for non-profit and cultural organizations as well as to individual teaching artists partnering with public schools or cultural learning centers in the four counties for the purpose of arts education in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and Hamilton counties.

The ADK Quad-County Cultural Arts Grants process begins by attending one of the many grant-writing seminars that are scheduled throughout the four counties. The seminars will be led by Chelsea Provost who will explain the program, answer questions, and provide application assistance. In order to receive grant funding, potential applicants are required to attend one of these seminars before completing the application. The seminars are free and open to the public. There is no commitment to the seminar other than attending. But all applicants must attend a seminar or arrange for a consultation with the Grant Coordinator–no exceptions—in order to apply for funding.

Pre-registration is required. To register, please contact Chelsea at [email protected] or 518-352-7715.
The deadline for submitting 2019 grant applications is October 22, 2018.
