The Project Support Grant program is supported locally by the City of Fayetteville, Cumberland County, and the Cumberland County Occupancy Tax. State funds are provided through a grant from the Grassroots Arts Program of the North Carolina Arts Council. Additional funds are provided through the generous support of individual donors to the Arts Council of Fayetteville | Cumberland County.

The Project Support Grant program is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) grant program. The ARP grant program aims to support communities by providing grants to eligible recipients to save jobs and to fund operations and facilities, health and safety supplies, and marketing and promotional efforts to encourage attendance and participation.
