Grants to North Carolina nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for arts programs that benefit the community. Funding is intended to support high-quality arts activities in a wide range of disciplines that have an impact on the community or statewide. Eligible activities take place in Cabarrus County.

Allowable fees may include artist fees, marketing, promotion, travel, contractual fees, rental or purchase of equipment, and other project-related costs.

To ensure that Grassroots arts programs reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of the county, Cabarrus Arts Council is required to spend a percentage of its annual county allotment on programming that reflects African American, Asian American, Latino and Native American cultures. Organizations led by these communities are encouraged to apply for your arts programming. Further, Project Assistance may be used by organizations to hire artists or ensembles of color to conduct arts programs.
