SC Arts Commission Grant Awards

General Operating Support Grant Awards

 

Purpose

The purpose of General Operating Support is to strengthen arts organizations that bring ongoing arts experiences and services to individuals, communities, and other organizations throughout the state by providing consistent, unrestricted support for basic operations. Applicants range from emerging to established arts organizations. View the current guidelines >>>

 

All S.C. Arts Commission 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.

FY2017 full-year grant awards have been finalized as of June 23, 2016. For questions about your award, please contact your coordinator.

 

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.
