Grassroots Grant


The Robeson County Arts Council will accept applications for local art projects and programs.  Applying organizations must have been in operation for at least one year, must reside and carry out projects within Robeson County.  (Individuals are not eligible to apply.) 

All projects must take place between July 1, 2021 and June 15, 2022.  Grant amounts range from $500 and up.  This is a "matching grant" -  applicants/recipients must provide a "dollar-for-dollar" match reflected in the budget and final report. 

First priority for funding includes theatres, galleries, art guilds, dance companies, folk art societies, writers' groups and more. 

Second priority is given to support arts learning and arts in education programs conducted by qualified artists. 

Third priority is given to community, civic and municipal organizations conducting programs with qualified artists.

Robeson County has one of the most ethnically diverse populations in the nation. Special consideration is given to projects that employ minority artists.
Deadline for the receipt of applications is Friday, July 23rd. 

Application forms and grant guidelines are available by clicking the buttons below.

We look forward to reviewing your organization’s application. Please remember this application is not for individual artists. If you have any questions, please contact us at or 910-874-2787.
