Project Support Grants
Project Support Grants increase cultural arts programming in Cumberland County with awards to 501(c) agencies, Colleges/Universities, and Municipal Entities.
Awards up to $10,000 support project expenses that are directly related to the completion of the cultural arts program, such as program-related material fees, contract fees, marketing. Cultural arts are defined as projects promoting arts, history, or cultural/heritage.
The Project Support Grant is supported locally by the City of Fayetteville, Cumberland County, and the Cumberland County Occupancy Tax. State funds are provided through the Grassroots Arts Program administered by the North Carolina Arts Council.
For the 2023-2024 Project Support Grant cycle, there is NO cash match requirement.
Projects must take place between July 1, 2023 through June 30, 2024.
