**Please note that for the 2021 Grant Cycle, as in 2020, in response to the economic challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, FCAA will consider funding essential operational costs that will help an organization remain open; retain an employee; hire a consultant to envision a future operational/strategic plan for your organization; or provide other basic efforts toward the surviving and thriving of the arts in Forsyth County during this time. Also, please note funds may be requested for both operating AND artistic expenses, if desired.
