Arts Council sets grant application deadline

The Rowan Arts Council announces Aug. 12 as the deadline for the 2011-2012 Grassroots Grants applications.
The Grassroots Grants Fund was established in 1977 to provide quality arts experiences to all citizens in North Carolina.
Since 1977, the North Carolina Arts Councilís Grassroots Arts Program has provided 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. Rowan Arts Council serves as the North Carolina Arts Councilís partner in awarding subgrants to local organizations for arts programs in Rowan County.
Applications are available for non-profit organizations whose purpose is to promote and develop diverse cultural arts programming in Rowan County.
Funding priority is given to qualified arts organizations, 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 North Carolina Arts Councilís General Support Program.
Projects must occur between July 1 and May 15.
Application forms and grant guidelines are available on the Rowan Arts Council website at www.rowanarts. org. The Arts Council will also mail applications and guidelines upon request. Applications must be received no later than August 12.
The Rowan Arts Council is available to assist interested applicants in preparing competitive grants. Grant applications are evaluated by a diverse panel of community members and voted on by the Rowan Arts Council Board of Directors. Awards are announced in October.
For more information, please visit the councilís website at www.rowanarts.org or call Sue McHugh, Board of Directors, Rowan Arts Council at 704-577-9965 Mon-Fri from 3 to 6 p.m.
