ARP FUNDS AVAILABLE FOR ARTS NONPROFITS
The City of Wilmington recognizes that the nonprofit arts industry is an important sector of Wilmington’s economy. The Arts Council of Wilmington/New Hanover County will award American Recovery Plan funds to nonprofit arts organizations in Wilmington, NC to help these entities and their employees endure the economic hardships caused by COVID-19 and its variants. Grants will be one-time emergency relief payments. American Recovery Plan funds cannot reimburse any expenses already paid for by other federal relief funds such as PPP loans and other local, state, and federal relief programs.
Priority will be given to organizations that serve populations that are traditionally underserved, particularly those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by disability, economics, ethnicity, or geography.
The application period is October 1 – October 31, 2021.
