Grassroots Arts Grant

Each year the ACWC applies for an NC Arts Council Grassroots Grant. Grant amounts are based on a county's population and funding for grants, provided by the state legisture. The ACWC has been named a Designated County Partner which means that it must subgrant 50% of its funds to local arts and community organizations for art projects and programs. The remaining 50% of the Grassroots funds go to support the Arts Council's programs.
