Grants ranging from $1,000 to $6,000 to Wake County, North Carolina PreK-12 public, private, and charter schools and PTAs for innovative arts-based educational programs. Applicants must attend a workshop on January 11 or 20. Funding is intended to assist in the development of long-term, innovative, and arts-based educational programs that involve a teaching artist(s) or arts consultant and may involve partners or collaborators. Programs developed must demonstrate strong connections to the Common Core and NC Essential Standards.
Schools may apply for a one-year planning grant. If a planning grant is awarded and the project is successful, the applicant may apply for an implementation grant in the School Project or Youth Arts category, if applicable, in subsequent years. Receiving a planning grant award does not guarantee funding for implementation. United Arts will also consider innovative concepts/projects that contribute to a change in instructional practice, leadership in the arts or an increased emphasis on the arts in the school culture.
