The Arts Council of Wilmington & New Hanover County is accepting applications for two NC Arts Council Grassroots Arts Program grants through June 17, 2022.
Since 1977, the NC 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. The Arts Council of Wilmington/NHC is the NC Arts Council’s Designated County Partner for New Hanover County and will grant $50,000 in FY 2022-2023.
This year we will administer an additional $50,000 through American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding approved by the North Carolina General Assembly in November 2021. Unlike the process for distribution of state GAP funds which starts with a base amount, the federal dollars are assigned on a straight per capita formula.
The Arts Council will host two Grassroots Arts Program Grant workshops via Zoom to assist interested applicants. All applicants are encouraged to attend as there are amendments to the Grassroots Arts Program grant this year.
