SPRING LYCEUM SERIES—MAKING HOME
What does it mean to be home? Making a home is on ongoing process rather than a one-time choice, reflecting an active effort to sustain natural and human communities through the years. Our spring lecture series is centered on that process with a fascinating variety of speakers. Next up: Homeward Bound: Atlantic Salmon Migrations.

SCR GRANTS PROGRAM SEEKS PANEL REVIEWERS & OTHER VOLUNTEER INDIVIDUALS & ORGANIZATIONS
Being a grant applicant is only one way to participate in the Statewide Community Regrants (SCR; formerly Decentralization or DEC) program. Other key roles include:
Panel reviewers. For each annual grant cycle, Community Arts and Arts Education applications are evaluated by a panel of reviewers who assess each proposed project on its own merits, as well as in comparison to the other applications. To help ensure as balanced and diverse a panel as possible, individual artists and arts organization members of all kinds, as well as people who simply love the arts, are encouraged to volunteer now. Panelists for the recently submitted 2022 applications are currently being sought (please see below for contact info to learn more).
Auditors and fiscal sponsors. Once the 2022 SCR awards are determined and projects begin to take place later this year, arts enthusiasts will be needed to serve as auditors, attending SCR-grant-supported events and reporting on how successful they are at meeting the requirements of the guidelines.
For the 2023 SCR cycle, which could potentially start up as early as this summer with “How-to-Apply” grant seminars, nonprofit organizations (including those outside of the arts), governmental/quasi-governmental entities and tribal organizations will be needed to serve as fiscal sponsors. These conduit organizations are necessary to enable individual artists and arts groups that themselves are not official nonprofits to apply for SCR grants.
To learn more about serving as a 2022 panel reviewer or auditor, as well as a fiscal sponsor for the 2023 grant cycle and beyond, please contact SCR Grant Coordinator Fred Balzac at Fred’s work email or 518-588-7275 and visit the Grants section HERE.
