SC Arts Commission Grant Awards

Folklife and Traditional Arts Grant Awards


The Folklife and Traditional Arts Program supports programs that promote a greater understanding and visibility of, and appreciation for, South Carolina's many cultures through documentation and presentation of traditional art forms, their practitioners and their communities. View the current guidelines >>>


All SCAC grant awards are contingent upon availability of funds, submission and approval of final reports, and compliance with program grant guidelines. Additional grants are awarded throughout the year.


Note to grantees: Notification of your award is provided through posting on this website, which you may consider official confirmation of your award until contract paperwork is issued. Contracts are issued throughout the year, with paperwork for full-year grants (July 1 to June 30) generally mailed in fall of the award year. If you need an award letter before it arrives with your contract paperwork, please contact your coordinator.
