Grassroots Grants Program

Grassroots Arts Program Grants are awarded annually to local organizations for community art programs. These funds are allocated by the State of North Carolina through the North Carolina Arts Council to every county in the state. The Caldwell Arts Council serves as the Caldwell County partner for the allocation of these funds.
