Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON, N.C.––The Arts Council of Lincoln County is now accepting sub-grant applications.

According to arts council spokeswoman Deanna McGinnis, the group is taking them through Aug. 31. McGinnis added that for the past 42 years, the North Carolina Arts Council’s Grassroots Arts Program has provided the people of the Old North State with high-quality artistic experiences. Using a per capita-based formula, the program provides funding for the arts in all of the state’s 100 counties through partnerships with local arts councils. The Arts Council of Lincoln County serves as the North Carolina Arts Council’s partner in awarding sub-grants to local organizations for arts programs in Lincoln County.

“Any 501-C-three groups are eligible to apply,” said McGinnis. “Through the years, we have funded many organizations. And we look forward to funding again.”
