Due: December 4, 2017

The Traditional Arts Grant Program works to increase the public awareness, understanding and appreciation of the traditional arts in the South, through funding projects that bring a traditional artist/ensemble and a scholar/folklorist for multi-day residencies in Southern communities. The program is designed to serve both communities and traditional artists. Priority consideration is given to support new applicants and underserved communities.


  • Nonprofit organizations, official units of government, and educational organizations, in South Arts’ nine-state region are eligible to apply. South Arts’ nine-state region includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
  • Organizations must have not-for-profit, tax-exempt status, be an official unit of local, county or state government, or apply through a fiscal agent which meets one of the above-listed descriptions.

Educational institutions (schools, school systems, colleges and universities) are eligible.
