Community Arts Grants (CAG) is a local re-grant program of the Arts Council of Rockland (ACOR). These grants are made possible with funds from the Decentralization program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). Goals of the CAG Program are: making quality arts programming available to all Rocklanders; assisting emerging arts organizations; supporting the cultural expression of Rockland’s ethnic groups; making arts programming accessible to under-served and minority communities.
