The Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) program is a regrant partnership between the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and the Preservation League of New York State. The Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area has provided additional support for this program for four qualifying projects in their service region. The TAG program supports arts centers, historic sites, music halls, theaters, libraries, and other cultural nonprofit or municipal entities that steward historic buildings throughout New York State.

With the announcement of the 2019 awards, support provided by TAG since its launch in 2012 totals $374,377. These grants have directly advanced 129 historic preservation efforts.“The positive effects of the TAG program can be felt in dozens of communities across New York State,” said Preservation League President Jay DiLorenzo. “We are excited to fund another diverse group of projects this year, thanks to our program partners at NYSCA and the additional generosity of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area.”

“Preserving our state’s historic structures is essential to building and maintaining healthy communities across New York State,” said NYSCA Executive Director Mara Manus. “In partnership with NYSCA, the TAG Program provides critical support to significant sites and cultural anchors statewide, from the Mohawk Valley home of one of the first African American Civil War soldiers to historic theaters in Utica and Syracuse.”

“We are thrilled to support this program,” said Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area Executive Director Scott Kellar. “TAG provides an avenue for us of evaluating and funding different projects, that are important to our partners. Congratulations to all the recipients!”
