The Chenango Arts Council has announced that they have grants available for artists, teaching artists, and arts organizations in Chenango, Otsego, and Broome counties.  Two types of grants will be offered, a Community Arts grant and Art Education grants.  Community Arts grants provide support for arts and cultural projects and enable emerging artists and organizations to grow professionally and to enhance culture in communities where they live and work.
