Thank Your Elected Officials

QCA grants city and state government funding, granted to us by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA, allocated by our local city council members). and the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA, allocated by our state officials elected to senate and assembly) This is a wonderful time to write or call your elected officials, letting them know the impact of their decision to continue their support of DCA or NYSCA. It’s important to let our elected officials know the cultural happenings of their districts so they understand the need for support, and not just in times of emergency. 

When writing to your elected, include in your letter:

1.     The support came from NYC Department of Cultural Affairs or the NYS Council on the Arts through the Queens Council on the Arts’ Queens Arts Fund

2.     How much you were funded

3.     The Title and a short blurb of your project including community impact (how many people do you think will attend)

4.     Where and When your project will take place.
