WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (August 31, 2021) – ArtsWestchester announced a new grant on Monday that will help artists and arts groups reconnect with their audiences.
The Arts Alive Recovery NY Regrant is a new, onetime opportunity designed to promote live performances and in-person arts programming. Grants ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 are available for projects scheduled between Sept. 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022.

“For more than a year, artists were unable to perform in public in front of live audiences. These grants will help artists and arts groups recover from pandemic closures by promoting live, in-person events,” said ArtsWestchester CEO Janet Langsam.

Performing arts are a priority, but other events with a public component are eligible for consideration. New, first-time applicants are encouraged to apply. Information about the grant and instructions on apply are available online at: https://artswestchester.org/artist-opportunities/arts-alive-recovery-ny-regrant-funding-opportunity/
The application deadline is September 28 at 11:59 p.m. Questions should be emailed to [email protected]
