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.

 

Note to grantees: Notification of your award is provided through posting on this website, which you may consider official confirmation of your award until your contract is issued.
