All grant recipients are required to prominently display the North Carolina Arts Council logo with tagline and credit lines on-site at funded events and in all digital and printed publicity materials. We also encourage you to use this on your website, electronic newsletters, and in as many materials and places as possible. Your display of these items serve to recognize the investment by the North Carolina General Assembly in our grants and programs.
In all communications, North Carolina Arts Council should always be written out on first reference. N.C. Arts Council is acceptable on second reference. NCAC should not be used.

Copies of these letters must be included with final reports. We hope grantees will also invite legislators to attend performances, exhibitions, and other project-related activities.
