Below is information for recipients of Artist Support Grants. Refer to Grant Contract for complete details.
- Grant recipients shall use the grant money exclusively for activities specified in the application or approved in writing for a revision.
- Grant funds that remain unspent at the end of the grant period must be refunded within 30 days after the end of the grant period.
- If the grant recipient fails to complete the funded project, or if funded project constitutes an exhibition or performance that does not occur, grant funds must be refunded.
- The grant recipient permits his/her name and information about his/her background and project to be included in publicity about the Artist Support Grant.
- Recipients may be asked to exhibit, read, or perform work representative of the awarded project at the conclusion of the grant period.
- Grant Recipients are required to provide required reports by the dates specified in the grant contract.
- 75% of the awarded grant money is paid upon receipt of the grant contract, interim report, and any required documents. The remaining 25% will be paid upon receipt of the final report.
- Final grant payments are made on a reimbursement basis only; therefore, the recipient may initially have to pay for some portion of the project.

- Grantees must include the following credit in publicity, promotion, and printed materials for the funded project. The credit line shall read: “[Grant Recipient] is supported by United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
