An applicant briefing was held Thursday, April 20th at 5:00 PM, at WNED STudios located at 140 Lower Terrace, Buffalo, NY. During the presentation the Erie County Department of Environment and Planning and Erie County Arts and Cultural Advisory Board (EACAB) members reviewed the 2017 funding process and provided an overview of the 2018 funding application. 

As in prior years, attendees will receive a helpful checklist to be used while completing their 2018 short- or long-form funding applications. The funding application process provides the EACAB with important applicant information related to organizational effectiveness in the areas of finance, governance, and management. The funding process aligns with the New York State Council of the Arts process to increase efficiencies for applicants.
