Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) received three Regrowth and Capacity grants totaling $30,000 from the New
York State Council on the Arts. The responsive funding of NYSCA is providing nearly 1000 organizations with over $13 million in recovery support in FY23, as part of their historic FY93 $90 million in grant making and $150 million in multi-year capital support.
These funds will support our traditional craft workshops, architectural and design history programs connecting the Adirondacks to other regions of New York State, and administrative services, all part of AARCH’s ongoing recovery from pandemic challenges. In addition to the three $10,000 Regrowth and Capacity grants from NYSCA, AARCH also received a $30,000 Support for Organizations grant from the Arts Council.
“Our NYSCA funds will support AARCH’s work program connecting our rural community with our state’s cultural, artistic, and architectural history, along with teaching new craft skills and empowering the development of traditional trades skills.,” said Erin Tobin, AARCH Executive Director. “The New York State Council on the Arts provides incredibly important support for nonprofit arts and cultural organizations throughout the state.
