United Arts Council

Mission Support Grant Guidelines

Many questions surrounding the uncertainty of life post-pandemic still remain, making it difficult for arts organizations to plan for the future. Ensuring that our grantees weather this storm is our top priority.

Therefore, United Arts will temporarily shift from offering programming support aligned to specific grant categories to general operating support. This newly designed Mission Support Grant opportunity will support organizations with missions to provide arts programming throughout Wake County.

Information Session

A virtual information session will be held Wednesday, March 3, 2021, at 10:30 am via Zoom. The session will include information about the updated guidelines/application and time for questions. Register for the session at https://form.jotform.com/210466673325153. Details about joining the meeting will be emailed to those registered the day before session. The session will be recorded and made available to eligible applicants.
