Tryon Fine Arts Center is accepting applications for the NC Arts Council Grassroots Arts Program until September 15.  Since 1977, this program has provided North Carolina citizens access to high quality arts experiences.  Using a per capita based formula, the program provides funding for the arts in all 100 counties of the state through partnerships with local arts councils.  Though TFAC is not an arts council, it provides administrative support and serves as the NC Arts Council’s partner in awarding subgrants to local organizations for arts programs in Polk County.

Applications are available for non-profits and other arts organizations whose purpose is to promote and develop diverse cultural arts programming in Polk County.  Funding priority is given to qualified arts organizations, arts in education programs conducted by qualified artists, and other community organizations that provide arts programs in the county. Projects must occur between September 30 and May 30, 2017.

Application forms and grant guidelines are available on the TFAC website at www.tryonarts.org or may be picked up at TFAC during business hours, Tuesday – Friday 10:00-4:00 and Saturday 10:00-1:00.  Applications must be received no later than 5:00 PM on September 15, 2017.  Awards are announced in late September.

For information on the Grassroots Arts Program, call TFAC Executive Director Marianne Carruth at 828-859-8322 or visit www.ncarts.org.
