GRANTS & FUNDING

Through a citizen board appointed by the Governor, the North Carolina Arts Council serves as the steward of state and federal funds appropriated for the arts. Grants activate partnerships between artists, arts organizations and communities that benefit every county in the state. More than 1,300 grants are awarded each year to ensure that artists and arts organizations continue to produce rich and diverse arts experiences for the state's citizens and visitors.

Grant Guidelines for Organizations
A wide range of grant opportunities are available for organizations. To be eligible for funding, organizations must be nonprofit and must have been producing quality arts programs for at least 2 consecutive years. All grant forms used by organizations are available through the online eGRANT system. The system may be used to apply for grants, revise an application if required and prepare final reports on funded grants.

Grant Guidelines for Artists
Fellowships are offered to choreographers, visual artists, writers, composers, film/video artists, screenwriters, playwrights, and songwriters. Visual artists, film/video artists, writers, playwrights and screenwriters may apply for 1-2 month residencies at the Headlands Center for the Arts in California or the Vermont Studio Center. Artists may also apply to be included in the North Carolina Touring Artist Directory.

Grant Guidelines for Internships
The Arts Council offers Community Arts Administration Internships and a Folklife Internship. All internships provide a stipend.
