The Tri-County Arts Council administers New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) funding in Cattaraugus, Allegany and Chautauqua counties. This year, the Arts Council regranted over $70,000 to artists and arts organizations in our region.
Founded in 1977, The New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program (DEC) was developed to ensure New York State’s cultural funding reached every part of the state. DEC funding provides support for community-based arts & cultural activities through a local decision making grant process that reflects the unique character of each community. In 2000, the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) appointed the Cattaraugus County Arts Council (now the Tri-County Arts Council) to administer the DEC Program for Cattaraugus, and soon after gained administration of Allegany and Chautauqua counties.
