About This Grant

Purpose

Subgranting (SUB) grants provide funds to local arts councils for subgranting to organizations and artists in their region.

Applicants from a county with a subgranting arts council must apply to their subgrant site for small project grants. These applicants are ineligible for S.C. Arts Commission Arts Project Support (APS) Grants, except when the Commission has pre-determined that a project has a statewide impact.

How to Apply

Subgranting grants are managed in our online grants management system, from application, to approval and contracts, through payments and final reports.
