Rowan Arts Council announces Grassroots Grants application

SALISBURY — The Rowan Arts Council has set Aug. 19 as the deadline for 2016-2017 Grassroots Grants applications.

Since 1977, the North Carolina Arts Council’s Grassroots Arts Program has provided North Carolina citizens access to the arts. 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 Council’s partner in awarding subgrants to local organizations for arts programs in Rowan County.

Applications are available for nonprofit 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 Council’s general support program. Projects must occur between July 1, 2016 and May 15, 2017.

Application forms and grant guidelines are available on the North Carolina Arts Council website at http://www.ncarts.org/Grants/ManageYourAward.aspx.

The Rowan Arts Council will also mail applications and guidelines upon request. Applications must be received no later than 5 p.m. on Aug. 19.

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 boar of directors. Awards are announced in September.

For questions or more information, contact Rowan Arts Council at 704-638-3100 or email rowanarts@visitsalisburync.com.
