In counties without a Designated County Partners (DCPs), the N.C. Arts Council invites an organization to serve as a Provisional County Partner (PCP) in order to manage the distribution of Grassroots funds. A PCP must submit an application annually.
N.C. Arts Council staff consults with each provisional partner to create a distribution plan that meets the requirements of the Grassroots Arts Program. Some PCPs subgrant Grassroots funds and others conduct arts programs with their county’s allocation.
The 2021-22 deadline is Monday, May 3, 2021 (with the exception of school PCP partners who have a deadline of Monday, October 4, 2021). Applicants will submit the form electronically through the GO Smart portal. Applicants will be asked to provide the following information on the application.
