Funding for these grants is contingent upon the Jackson County Arts Council receiving grant funding from the North Carolina Arts Council and Jackson County as the designated granting partner.
Qualified organizations such as theater groups, galleries, choruses, art educators, orchestras and other non-profit organizations may apply for funding. The public schools may also apply to provide cultural enrichment programs in the schools. Colleges and universities may apply for funding if the proposed program will serve the broader countywide population. The Council encourages applications that emphasize African American, Native American, Hispanic or Asian cultures.
Persons planning to submit an application are advised to consult a representative of the arts council for instruction and information. There will be a grant application assistance day from 10 a.m. to noon and 6 to 8 p.m. May 29.
