The deadline for submitting applications for grants from the North Carolina Arts Council is Monday, March 3.
The grant programs are designed to sustain and advance the state’s arts industry, to enhance the education of the state’s children and youth, and to ensure that all North Carolina citizens have access to a wide range of high quality arts programs. Grants from the council are catalysts for public private partnerships and helping arts organizations leverage the required matching funds.
To be eligible to apply for Arts Council grants, an organization must have non-profit status, have been producing quality arts programs for at least two consecutive years, and have prior-year organization cash operating expenses of at least $20,000.
Grant awards are recommended by panels of civic leaders and arts experts based on artistic merit, benefit of the project to the state’s citizens, and the applicant’s organizational strength and capacity. Information about grants for organizations is available at the council’s website: www.ncarts.org.
