Auburn Public Theater was selected in 2013 by the New York State Council On The Arts (NYSCA) to be the administrative site for its five-county decentralization grant program.
Through Finger Lakes Community Arts Grants we regrant over $89,000 for the arts in Cayuga, Seneca, Wayne, Yates, and Ontario Counties.
The Decentralization Program was developed to ensure New York State’s cultural funding reaches every part of the state. The purpose of FLCAG is to fund nonprofit community arts organizations, arts education and individual artists who are not currently funded directly by NYSCA. Decentralization support enables emerging artists and organizations to grow professionally and to enhance the cultural climate in communities and neighborhoods where they live and work.
