In addition to providing a local art gallery and arts programming for Allegany County, one of our most important functions is to serve as a funding source to local nonprofit organizations and individuals interested in the pursuit of arts-related activities in our community. Over the past few years, the Allegany Arts Council has awarded more than $120,000 in grants which support creative and artistic endeavors.

The Allegany Arts Council bylaws require a Grants Committee comprised of its Executive Director as Chair, and six members of the community, who should represent a broad-base of the community it represents. The Grants Committee reviews all applications and uses a rubric to rank them based upon completion of eligibility guidelines, final reports from previous years, overall funding need and artistic merit. Notifications and payment are made to awarded organizations no later than November 1, 2020.
