Home Made Theater Awarded NY Grant

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Home Made Theater has been awarded $49,500 grant from 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,” NY Gov. Kathy Hochul said, in a statement. “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.”

Home Made Theater will use the funds to help fulfill their mission to enrich the cultural life of the Capital Region and beyond by offering a diverse range of locally sourced live theater created by professionally minded artists, providing the opportunity for exciting and rewarding participation in all aspects of theater to the community. 

“2022 will continue to bring change and Home Made Theater will play a vital role in the renewal of our state’s economy and creative ecosystem,” said Mara Manus, Executive Director, NYSCA.
