The Halifax County Arts Council is announcing the availability of funding for local arts activities. Grants will be made to local groups for programs for HalifaxCounty citizens.
These grants are made available by the North Carolina General Assembly through the North Carolina Arts Council’s Grassroots Arts Program. Allocations to each country are based on population figures. In HalifaxCounty, the Halifax County Arts Council is the Designated County Partner, and is responsible for distributing the grants in the community.
Non profit organizations and schools are eligible to apply. The applicant need not have a mission that is primarily cultural or artistic, but the grant funding will be for arts activities only. Projects must take place between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016.
In the past the Halifax County Arts Council has funded a variety of activities through the Grassroots Arts Programs through a variety of local organizations, including art camps for children, concerts, displays of artists’ work, and senior workshops, poetry readings and more.
Priority will be given to multicultural organizations and projects (African American, Native American, Hispanic, Asian American).
Applications and grant requirements are available on the Halifax County Arts Council website: www.halifaxarts.org. All complete applications received by the October 16, 2015 deadline will be considered.
