Grants

NCAC logoThe 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.

Grants are awarded through a competitive process that is reviewed by a panel of community citizens. No recipients are guaranteed from year to year.
