Statewide Community Regrants Application Seminars

Applications Seminars are required for all new applicants for the SCR program and for applicants who have not applied since the 2020 cycle of DEC/SCR. For recent applicants, it highly encouraged to attend these seminars. 

Below, you will find sessions for Zoom sessions and in-person sessions. If these times are not amenable to your schedule, please contact Regrants Program Officer Ben Verdi at or at 315-435-2162 for a one-on-one consultation. If you would like an in-person one-on-one session, CNY Arts has a reliable wi-fi connection and extra computers.

Please be aware this page will be updated with new seminar locations and places as we get closer to the December 16th deadline for applications. CNY Arts highly recommends that all applicants bookmark this page (⌘+D on macOS or Control+D on Windows).
