The Center for the Arts of Homer recently received grant funding to help with the cost of various projects.

According to a release, the Center for the Arts received $50,000 from the New York State Council on the Arts’ capital projects fund for roof replacement and insulation of the community building (also known as the Morton Building).

Announced by Gov. Kathy Hochul, the nearly $32 million in funding supports over 100 projects.

Noted in the release, “This investment in non-profit arts and cultural organizations across New York supports crucial building renovations, accessibility improvements and new spaces for creative and cultural work.”

The release stated that NYSCA grant awards were distributed in two categories:

  • Small and midsized capital improvement grants, which range from $50,000 to $2 million
  • Large capital improvement grants, which range from $2 million to $10 million. It focuses on large-scale capital projects that prioritize community development and placemaking.
