Arts & Entertainment Grants available for arts programs

The Arts Council of Macon County invites local non-profit agencies to apply to the council for a Grassroots Arts Program grant to help fund community arts programs such as concerts, exhibits or workshops.

The deadline for the summer award cycle is July 29; applications are judged on artistic merit, need/cost effectiveness, and participation level.

Special consideration is given to new projects designed to reach people not normally served by the arts.

Grants are awarded on a funds-available basis and must be matched dollar-for-dollar by the applicant organization; awards generally range from $200 to $500.

The Grassroots Arts Program is a project of the North Carolina Arts Council and is funded by the state legislature on a per capita basis.
