Technical Assistance Grants
NEW FOR FY13: Professional Development opportunities are funded under Professional Development Scholarships on a rolling deadline.
Overview: The purpose of the Technical Assistance grant program is to provide funds to Charlotte-Mecklenburg non-profit organizations with a primary mission of arts, science or history to hire knowledgeable consultants to strengthen management and programs, develop a resource publication, and engage in planning. We wish to encourage staff and board development at all levels of the organization.
Eligibility: Any Mecklenburg County non-profit organization whose primary mission includes arts, science or history. Projects that work with Public and Independent Schools, after school programs, and camps are not eligible. Applicants who have previously submitted their project to ASC under any granting program may not resubmit.
Application Deadlines: Grant applications will be accepted two times during the ASC fiscal year (July-June). ASC staff will accept, review and approve requests as long as funds are available. Generally applicants will be notified within three weeks of the deadline. Requests for funding will be competitive. As a result, potential applicants are encouraged to submit complete and well conceived proposals.
