The County Initiative Program

This re-grant program is made possible by the Greene County Legislature through an annual allocation of funds in the county budget.

Since 1983, the Greene County Legislature has allocated funds to CREATE Council on the Arts(Greene County Council on the Arts)for re-granting to major arts and cultural organizations in Greene County. Through this re-grant program, the county can take a more active role in the delivery of arts programs and services within the county and encourage organizations to cooperate and collaborate with each other and with their respective county government. With invaluable support from the Greene County Legislature, these goals have been accomplished and continue to have a positive impact on the state of the artistic and cultural quality of life in Greene County.

The purpose of this program is to provide general operating or programmatic support to major Greene County organizations that offer quality professional services and programs of benefit to the residents of Greene County. This funding is intended to promote the development, growth and viability of major cultural organizations.
