North Carolina Arts Council
Grants to North Carolina nonprofit arts organizations to develop diverse cultural arts programming. Funding is intended to support a variety of arts organizations, including theaters, galleries, choral societies, and festivals; arts in education programming conducted by qualified artists; and other community activities, including concerts, dance productions, and art classes.
To ensure that Grassroots arts programs reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of North Carolina, each DCP is required to spend a representative percentage of its annual county allotment on programs that reflect the diverse cultures (specifically African American, Asian American, Latino, and Native American) of its county’s population.
The first priority of the Grassroots Arts subgrant program is to provide operating or program support to qualified arts organizations not already receiving or eligible to receive support from the N.C. Arts Council. These include theaters, symphonies, galleries, art guilds, choral societies, dance companies, folk arts societies, writers’ groups, and arts festivals, among others.
The second priority of the Grassroots Arts subgrant program is to support arts learning and arts in education programs conducted by qualified artists. These can be artist residencies in schools, afterschool or summer camps, or adult arts learning classes. The third priority of Grassroots Arts subgrants is to community, civic and municipal organizations. These programs must be conducted by qualified artists.
