Are you an artist or part of an arts and culture group in Charlotte-Mecklenburg?

Mecklenburg County’s new Opportunity Fund has just announced grants as high as $30,000 for local art and creative projects and initiatives.

This year, the Opportunity Fund has already invested more than $925,000 in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg arts and culture sector, and the Arts and Culture Advisory Board first tested the Fund in fiscal year 2022 and awarded roughly $235,000.

The deadline to submit your letter of intent will be on March 31, and if you meet the eligibility requirements, you could be contacted to submit a full proposal. A total of $325,000 is available in this new grant cycle and will be awarded in late June and distributed by early July.
