The New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) is a funding agency that supports the activities of nonprofit arts and cultural organizations in New York State and helps to bring high-quality artistic programs to the citizens of the state. The Council has been directed by the state legislature to maintain the “paramount position of this state in the nation and the world as a cultural center” through the support of nonprofit arts organizations in New York State. The Council achieves its goals primarily through its grants activity. NYSCA invites nonprofit arts and cultural organizations that meet basic eligibility requirements to apply for grants. Applicants must also meet the specific eligibility requirements for those particular NYSCA funding programs and categories to which they apply, and they are evaluated according to review criteria as described in the agency guidelines.

LITTREE was created to serve NYSCA-funded organizations with literary programs, their curators, and the poets and writers they present. The site offers in-depth information about the organizations and their curators as well as detailed schedules, thereby serving as a learning center and clearinghouse for those involved in literature-based presentation. In the future, the site will present detailed profiles of curators; it will also present poets and writers who present their work throughout New York State. The site is hosted by Bright Hill Press and Center.
