Grant could bolster arts


Tonawanda News — The Preservation League of New York State launched the Technical Assistance Grant program in 2012 to support discrete projects that preserve New York State’s cultural and historic resources. 

Grants of up to $3,000 are available to not-for-profit arts and cultural groups and municipalities managing historic sites, museums, arts facilities and other culturally important institutions that are located in historic buildings and structures open to the public. Each grant recipient must provide a $500 match and the cost of the project may not exceed $3,500.

“Our TAG program fills a significant funding gap,” said Jay DiLorenzo, president of the Preservation League. “It is tailored to provide support to worthy projects in New York that may be ineligible for grants from other sources, or may not have the scope or scale to compete at regional and national levels.”
