An essential element of this funding is community engagement. The project must engage a segment of the community through a public program and / or the inclusion of community involvement in the development and creative process of the project.
Projects must connect to at least ONE of the Recommendations established by Future Culture: Connecting Staten Island’s Waterfront, a joint initiative created in 2016 by Design Trust for Public Space and Staten Island Arts.

- Supports and promotes unique cultural communities.
- Develops art and cultural activities that connect places and people.
- Strengthens the relationship between the cultural sector and owners and stewards of property.
- Under-resourced disciplines for 2022 are: Public Art, Folks Arts, New Media, and Humanities.
- Under-resourced disciplines have received limited or low funding in the past. Projects that fall under these disciplines will be prioritized in the panel process.
Four grants are awarded in the amount of $ 2500.
All art and artistic cultural disciplines – music, dance, digital / new media, film / video / animation, folk arts, interdisciplinary events / festivals, public art, theater, performing and visual arts – are considered.
