"Schenectady County is proud of our County Initiative Program," said Susan Savage, Chair of the Schenectady County Legislature in a written statement.
Grant awards are not guaranteed from year to year " awardees must re-apply each grant cycle " and applicants are required to be project specific in their proposal; requests for general operating support will not be considered.
"Historic preservation allows us to recognize the value of our rich heritage, and a thriving arts community is at the heart of the exceptional quality of life found here in Schenectady County. We are pleased to support those organizations that continue to make Schenectady County a great place to live and raise a family," said Savage.
Complete guidelines, the application process and grant eligibility requirements are outlined in the 2009-2010 Schenectady County CIP Grant Application, which can be downloaded from the Schenectady County Web site, www.schenectadycounty.com.
