Applications for the Arts & Science Council’s (ASC) 2011-2012 Cultural Project and Cultural Access grants are now available. Both grants allow eligible applicants to apply for up to $7,500.
Applications for both grants are available online at www.ArtsAndScience.org and due March 18, 2011 at noon. Cultural Project grants increase access to arts, science, history and heritage offerings, and strengthen the quality of cultural programming in neighborhoods and towns throughout Mecklenburg County. They are available to any Mecklenburg County non-profit organization that does not receive an ASC Operating Support grant to use for an arts, science, history or heritage related project. Dollar-for-dollar matching funds are required.
Cultural Access grants, designed to increase community access to African-American, Asian, Latino, and Native American arts, science, history and heritage experiences, are available to any Mecklenburg County non-profit, tax-exempt organization that does not receive ASC support from Cultural Project grants or Operating Support grants. Organization projects that have already received funding from ASC are ineligible for Cultural Access grants. Matching funds are encouraged for Cultural Access grants, but are not required.
