Grassroots Arts Program Grant 

Grant Information

Since 1977, the North Carolina 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 Iredell Arts Council serves as the North Carolina Arts Council’s partner in awarding subgrants to local organizations for arts programs in Iredell County.


Applications are available for non-profit organizations whose purpose is to promote and develop diverse cultural arts programming in Iredell county. Funding priority is given to qualified arts organizations (theaters, galleries, choral societies, festivals), 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 N.C. Arts Council’s State Arts Resources.

Projects must occur between July 1, 2020 – June 15, 2021.
