SC Arts Commission Grant Awards
The purpose of operating support funding 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.
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 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.
Impact of Budget Vetoes on FY18 Operating Support Grants
In January 2018, the S.C. General Assembly voted successfully to override the governor’s vetoes of additional S.C. Arts Commission funding. This restored additional funding appropriated to the SCAC and allows for full grant award disbursement, listed below and in Operating Support Grant contracts.
