programs, concerts, dance and theatre productions, festivals, galleries, and multicultural events. Funding priority
is given to qualified arts organizations, arts in education programs conducted by qualified artists, and other community organizations

funding through the North Carolina Arts Council’s General Support Program.
Since 1977, the North Carolina Arts Council’s Grassroots Arts Program has provided North
Carolina citizens 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. Arts United for Davidson
County serves as the North Carolina Arts Council’s partner in awarding subgrants to local organizations for arts programs
in Davidson County.
