Last year, in response to the challenges faced by arts organizations post-pandemic, United Arts shifted its programming grants from support aligned to specific grant categories to general operating support.

For 2022-2023, the Mission Support Grants will continue to offer general operating support to organizations with missions to provide arts programming, but now only arts organizations based in Wake County who offer specific types of arts programming will be eligible to apply.
