Arts Council Accepting Subgrant Applications

The Arts Council of Wayne County is now accepting applications for North Carolina Arts Council Grassroots Arts Program subgrants through July 31st.

Since 1977, the North Carolina Arts Council’s Grassroots Arts Program has provided North Carolina citizens access to quality arts experiences. Using a per capita based formula, the program provides funding for the arts in all 100 counties of the state through partnerships with local arts councils. ACWC serves as the North Carolina Arts Council’s partner in awarding subgrants to local organizations for arts programs in Wayne County. Applications are available for non-profit organizations whose purpose is to promote and develop diverse cultural arts programming in Wayne County. Funding priority is given to qualified arts organizations (theaters, galleries, choral societies, festivals), arts in education programs conducted by qualified artists, and other community organizations that provide arts programs in the county. Grassroots funds are not generally awarded to arts organizations that receive funding through the N.C. Arts Council’s State Arts Resources. Projects must occur between July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019. Application forms and grant guidelines are available on the ACWC website at or may be picked up at the ACWC office Monday – Friday between 9:00am-5:00pm. The ACWC will also mail applications and guidelines upon request. Applications must be received no later than July 31, 2018.

The Arts Council of Wayne County is also hosting a Grassroots Arts Program Grant Workshop to assist interested applicants in preparing competitive grants on June 13th at 5:30pm. New applicants are strongly encouraged to attend. Grant applications are evaluated by a diverse panel of community members and voted on by ACWC Board of Directors. Awards are announced in October each year. For questions or more information, contact ACWC at 919-736-3300 or [email protected].
