The Cabarrus Arts Council allocates thousands of dollars annually to support arts organizations and cultural programs across Cabarrus County. Funding for these grants comes from the North Carolina Arts Council Grassroots Arts funding and additional foundation grants when available. We thank the North Carolina General Assembly and the North Carolina Arts Council for the Grassroots Grants Program.
Over 265,000 participants benefit from programs and organizations supported by arts council grants. $50,000 in grants generated $1,064,526.00 in support of the arts in Cabarrus County in 2011-12.
Grants are awarded through a competitive process that is reviewed by a panel of community citizens. No recipients are guaranteed from year to year.
