Artist Support Grant

The North Carolina Arts Council understands the important role artists contribute to the vitality, unity and resiliency of our communities. The Arts Council has established the North Carolina Arts Council Artist Support Grant (ASG) as a one-year regional grant program to support individual artists during and following the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will fund professional and artistic development for emerging or established artists to create work, improve their business operations, or bring their work to new audiences.

The program builds on the success of the North Carolina Arts Council’s Regional Artist Project Grant program where regional consortiums of arts councils collaborated to distribute more than $2 million to artists over 30 years. The Artist Support Grant program expands the number of regional consortiums from 13 to 18 to ensure a more equitable disbursement of funds to artists in rural and urban areas across the state. The Artist Support Grant website includes additional resources for local arts council partners including training materials, potential panelists by region, as well as guidelines and forms.
