The NYSCA Network

Visit our blog, The NYSCA Network, for news about NYSCA and our grantees, application tips and photos from NYSCA events. Find out about the arts in New York State through our #NYSCASuccess stories about our grantees, including the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra the Corning Museum of Glass, and the Children's Museum of the Arts. Also on the Network: NYSCA Chair Dr. Barbaralee Diamonstein Spielvogel honored by Purchase College, and a calendar of events celebrates the Erie Canal Bicentennial.

January Contract Cycle

As you know, for the past three years, NYSCA has been moving to a January contract cycle as July contracts expire to comply with New York State procurement regulations. To date, approximately 75% of NYSCA grantees have made this transition. To this end, all new contracts will continue to be issued on a January 1st – December 31st contract cycle.  Once this transition is complete, NYSCA will be primed to more efficiently review applications and consistently execute on-time contracts in accordance with prompt contracting guidelines.
