Funding for the arts availableWritten by Admin
The Jackson County Arts Council is now accepting applications for arts program grants for the fiscal year 2012-2013.
The grant application will be reviewed twice during the year. Applications are due by Sept. 20 to be reviewed in October at the arts council meeting and due in Jan. 20, 2013, for review in February at the arts council meeting. Advance planning must occur for the two new due dates and review.
Practitioners in any of the arts, as well as nonprofit organizations, may apply for funding. Colleges and universities may apply for funding if the proposed program will serve the broader countywide population. Public schools may apply if the proposed program supplements education in the arts.
Program activities funded through these grants must be completed during the fiscal year. A grant report will be due within the month of program completion.
The Jackson County Arts Council receives funding from the North Carolina Arts Council, the Jackson County government and from member contributions. Application forms are available at www.JacksonCountyArts.com.
