Looking for Statewide Operating Support (SWO) grants?

That grant category has been phased out. SWO grantees were reassigned to our other operating support grant categories: General Operating Support and Operating Support for Small Organizations.

Looking for Teacher Standards Implementation (TSI) Grants?

The SC Arts Commission has replaced Teacher Standards Implementation (TSI) Grants with Arts Teacher Support Grants, available starting in FY21.
