“Arts Thrive & Grow” is a dynamic program that supports artists, non-profits, and art-based organizations in the capital region.

By investing in these creative endeavors, we not only foster artistic innovation but also drive economic development, ensuring that the arts continue to flourish, thrive, and contribute to the sustainable growth of our creative economy in the capital region.

All grants will be awarded by using a panel of your peers in an objective scoring process. Arts Thrive and Grow has been funded by New York State, Kathy Hochul, Governor.

We thank Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart Cousins for her extraordinary commitment and leadership, and our elected officials who represent our grantmaking region: Senators Jake Ashby and Neil D. Breslin; Assemblymembers Scott H. Bendett, Patricia Fahy, John T. McDonald III, Angelo Santabarbara, Phil Steck, and Mary Beth Walsh.
