Welcome to the Grant Page


FCAC is now accepting applications for North Carolina Arts Council Grassroots Arts Program subgrants through November 1. 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.

FCAC serves as the North Carolina Arts Council’s partner in awarding subgrants to local organizations for arts programs in Franklin County. Applications are available for non-profit organizations whose purpose is to promote and develop diverse cultural arts programming in Franklin 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, 2018 – June 30, 2019. Click below for Application forms and grant guidelines. Or they may be picked up at the FCAC office Thursday – Saturday between 10:30 -2pm. FCAC will also mail applications and guidelines upon request. Applications must be received no later than November 1, 2018.

FCAC is also hosting Grassroots Arts Program Grant ono-on-one Workshops to assist interested applicants in preparing competitive grants. New applicants are strongly encouraged to meet with Grant Administrator. Grant applications are evaluated by a diverse panel of community members. Awards are announced via email to applicants.
