In November 2022, the Greater Oneonta Historical Society (GOHS) was awarded a $49,500 multi-year Support for Organizations Grant from the New York State Council of the Arts (NYSCA). The Support for Organizations Grant will help fund the full-time salary of GOHS’ Executive Director, Dr. Marcela Micucci.
A media release on Tuesday, November 29, by New York State Governor Kathy Hochul announced the NYSCA Support for Organizations and Artists grants, which will provide over 38 millions dollars in funding to thousands of art groups, including museums, visual arts programs, arts education organizations, and music, dance, and theater companies as the state returns to pre-pandemic levels of creation and capacity.
“GOHS is excited to be able to offer the Oneonta area a full-time executive director,” Kim Back, President of the GOHS Board of Trustees, commented. “We look forward to Dr. Micucci continuing to help further advance the mission of our organization and serve our community.”
