The Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre
Awarded 100,000.00 by The New York State Council on the Arts
   
The Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre was awarded $49,500 per year for two years through the State & Local Partnership program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to support the recovery of the nonprofit arts and culture sector. Following New York State’s $105 million investment in the arts for FY2022, NYSCA has awarded more than $80 million since June 2021.
 
"The arts have long been a critical sector in our economy, and as we continue to rebuild a stronger New York, it's essential we do all we can help this industry thrive once again," "These awardees represent the best of what New York's vibrant communities have to offer and with this funding in hand, they will be able to not only continue their creative and inspiring work but help spur revitalization in their own backyard as well." Governor Kathy Hochul 
 
“NYSCA applauds Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature for their responsive investment of $105 million for the nonprofit arts and culture sector. 2022 will continue to bring change and The Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre will play a vital role in the renewal of our state’s economy and creative ecosystem,” said Mara Manus, Executive Director, NYSCA. “On behalf of the entire NYSCA Team, we wish to extend our sincere congratulations on your award.”
 
“Council congratulates Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre on their grant award! New York State arts and culture organizations inspire New Yorkers and cultivate community in every region,” said Katherine Nicholls, Chair, NYSCA. “Arts and culture are crucial to our state’s health, and the Council recognizes the dynamic impact of NYSCA grantees on the well-being of all New Yorkers.”
 
Despite the financial impacts of the pandemic, HPAC maintained a continued dedication to the local community, artists, and staff.  The funds awarded to HPAC  will support new commissions by performing and visual artists and presenters that are part of HPAC’s annual  Indigenous Women’s Voices Summit. Funds will also help HPAC acquire much-needed lighting equipment, engineering, digital and promotional support services 
 
The Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre is sincerely grateful to the Council, Gov. Kathy Hochul, and the NY State Legislature for recognizing the immense value in the arts sector and following through with meaningful support.
