Municipal Arts Allocations

Cultural arts enrich the lives of our citizens. They educate, inspire, entertain, and provide significant opportunities for economic development.

The purpose of Municipal Arts Allocations is to increase access to arts, cultural and historical programming in municipalities outside the City of Fayetteville in Cumberland County. Allocations range from $1,000 to $5,000 depending on the population size of the municipality.

Municipal Arts Allocations are not competitive and do not require a match. Claim your funds today!
