Revised Guidelines in Education and in the Arts

July 17, 2017

Please note that we have revised our guidelines in Education and in Arts and Culture. In Education, the emphasis is on providing disadvantaged children and youth with more high-quality learning time through early childhood education and afterschool, summer, and expanded learning programs; and on increasing access to and success in high-quality post-secondary educational opportunities. In arts and culture, now re-named Cultural Engagement, Youth Development, and the Arts, the emphasis is on promoting access to arts and culture for all New Yorkers, particularly people from underserved communities; helping to strengthen the arts infrastructure in the city; and promoting positive youth development among underserved youth through arts, cultural, and other unique programs that provide sequential opportunities to participate over an extended period of time.
