The Arts Council of Carteret County (ACCC) is pleased to announce the availability of grant monies to Carteret County nonprofit organizations to assist with arts and cultural programming. Grassroots grants are intended to fund art projects/programs that will be completed by June 30, 2018. Programs can focus on theater, music, dance, writing, folk-life, or the visual arts. Funds are made available through the North Carolina Arts Council’s Grassroots Arts Program to the 100 counties in North Carolina through a population based formula. Fifty percent of the monies awarded to ACCC must be subgranted back into Carteret County in the form of Grassroots subgrants. Ten percent of the monies awarded must be directed to multicultural arts programming offered by multicultural performers. In FY 2016-17 ACCC was able to award over $12,000 to six Grassroots sub grantees.
A panel of citizens from the community will review the grant applications, assessing the overall impact of the proposed program on the citizens of Carteret County, the excellence of the program, as well as its practicality.
Grant applications are due June 16, 2017. Guidelines for the grant application as well as the application are attached. Questions should be directed to the ACCC Grassroots Coordinator, Sandi Malone at firstname.lastname@example.org or 252-728-7550.Grant Guidelines for FY 2017-2018
