About ArtsWestchester Grants
ArtsWestchester grants reach every part of the County and make possible an extraordinary array of cultural activities. Our grants help Westchester’s cultural organizations grow and support individual artists in the creation of new work. The 2019 Challenge Grant Program is a funding opportunity open to cultural organizations that received a 2019 Basic Program Support, Project Support, Yonkers Arts Initiative or Mount Vernon Arts Initiative grant to help boost their operating income by attracting new contributions. This grant is made possible with support from Westchester County government.
