Governor Kathy Hochul announced that record grant funding is now available through the New York State Council on the Arts. The agency's first five grant opportunities of Fiscal Year 2023 are now open for artists and arts and culture organizations across New York. The 2023 State Budget appropriation includes $50 million in recovery funds and $50 million in capital projects support, in addition to the agency's base grant-making budget of $40 million.

"New York's arts sector is integral to our state's identity, character and economic well-being," Governor Hochul said. "These historic NYSCA grants will help strengthen nonprofits, spark the creative work of artists in all 62 counties, and revitalize the industry. As we welcome a new era for New York, we must continue to invest in the artists and cultural institutions across New York that make our state the art capital of the world."

The Morgan Stanley Alliance for Children's Mental Health Innovation Awards initiative aims to identify and fund mental healthcare solutions for children and young adults across the United States. This program specifically addresses the lack of both private and public investment in children’s mental health and of effective ways to connect innovative ideas with capital. The resulting systemic funding gap has only increased with the deepening crisis in children’s mental health due to COVID-19-related repercussions and ongoing social injustice issues.
