The Grassroots Arts Program is unique in that it empowers local arts councils and arts organizations to plan programs and projects for their citizens that reflect the arts and cultural traditions and resources specific to their area.  By providing funding for localized efforts, the North Carolina Arts Council helps foster a sense of pride in local communities and increases citizen participation in and ownership of local programs.

The North Carolina Arts Council is funded by the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources with the Arts Council of Lincoln County as the local County Partner administrator of the Grassroots Grant program.  Grants are given yearly for art program projects, cultural art events and services.  Funds are available to nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations, whose purpose is to promote and develop diverse cultural arts programming in Lincoln County.  For more information, please email or call the Arts Council office.
