Not-for-profit groups and municipalities are invited to attend a free information session on the Preserve New York (PNY) and Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) Programs, the signature grant programs of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and the Preservation League.
The League works with municipalities and not-for-profit groups across the state to host free information sessions to discuss these grants, their requirements, the process of applying and some successful previous applicants.
We’ve already held a few workshops this season, and additional workshops are slated for:
Not-for-profit organizations with 501c3 status and units of local government are eligible to apply. Arts and cultural organizations are particularly encouraged to apply or support applications. Applicants cannot apply to Preserve New York and the New York State Council on the Arts for the same project.
Launched in 1993, Preserve New York makes grants for historic structure reports, building condition reports, cultural landscape reports, and cultural resource surveys. Since 2017, The Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation has provided generous additional support for projects on Long Island.
Through its grant programs, the League has strategically invested in the rehabilitation of historic places, leveraged significant additional cash and in-kind resources, and protected properties at the local, state and national level through landmark designations. These grants help the League’s growing constituency conserve, protect and use their cultural resources, and are an important catalyst in realizing community preservation goals.
Guidelines and a list of frequently asked questions are available on the League’s website at www.preservenys.org/preserve-new-york.
Applications are not available online. Prospective applicants must discuss their proposed project with Frances Gubler at the League by calling (518) 462-5658 x 10 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org . The Preserve New York application deadline is March 25, 2019.
The Preserve New York Grant Program is made possible through funding from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and additional support from The Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation.
