Grassroots Grants Available for
Arts Programs in Caldwell County     

Grassroots Grant applications are currently being accepted for arts projects taking place in fiscal year 2015-2016. Grassroots Grants is a program of the North Carolina Arts Council which is administered locally by the Caldwell Arts Council.  Last year almost $10,000 was distributed to Caldwell County non-profit groups for arts projects and events.

The Grassroots Grants have been supporting projects and organizations in Caldwell County for more than twenty years. Any non-profit group doing arts programs and projects may apply. Grassroots grants are matching grants that must be matched dollar for dollar and will be disbursed quarterly or biannually. The project must be relevant to the arts at the community level. Credit must be given to the North Carolina Arts Council in any printed information or news releases. A final report is required at the completion of the project.

Applications should include a cover letter, application form, and budget. Applicants are wanted from all areas of Caldwell County in all disciplines of the arts. Applications will be accepted at the Caldwell Arts Council, 601 College Avenue (PO Box 1613) Lenoir NC 28645 through Friday, August 14th, 2015.
