The Arts Council allocates thousands of dollars annually to support arts organizations and cultural programs across Moore County. Funding for these grants comes from the North Carolina Arts Council Grassroots Arts funding and additional foundation grants when available. Grassroots Grants are awarded through a competitive process that is reviewed by a panel of community citizens and approved by the Arts Council Board of Trustees. No recipients are guaranteed from year to year. We thank the North Carolina General Assembly and the North Carolina Arts Council for the Grassroots Grants Program.
