Arts Council of Moore County Accepting Subgrant Applications
The Arts Council of Moore County (ACMC) is now accepting applications for North Carolina Arts Council Grassroots Arts Program subgrants through Aug. 23.
Since 1977, the N.C. Arts Council's Grassroots Arts Program has provided North Carolina residents 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. ACMC serves as the N.C. Arts Council's partner in awarding subgrants to local organizations for arts programs in Moore County.
Applications are available for nonprofit organizations whose purpose is to promote and develop diverse cultural arts programming in Moore 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 general support program. Projects must occur between July 1, 2010, and May 15, 2011.
Application forms and grant guidelines are available on the ACMC website at www.mooreart.org or may be picked up at the ACMC office at the Campbell House, 482 E. Connecticut Ave., Southern Pines, Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Applications must be received no later than Aug. 23.
Grant applications are evaluated by a diverse panel of community members and voted on by the ACMC Board of Directors. This year's awards will be announced in September.
