The mission of the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council (SWAC) is to enhance the quality of life in our community by fostering arts awareness and education, promoting a rich diversity of artistic experiences for all ages, all of which will be accomplished through leadership, support and funding of the arts. To provide for the funding part of that mission SWAC has four arts grants programs available to any incorporated, non-profit 501(c)3 organization in Wicomico County. Grants available are Project, Operating, Emergency, & Arts Enhanced Education grants. Click here for more info on AEE grants!

Individuals may only apply for SWAC grants if they seek and receive the support of a non-profit organization that will accept the financial and legal responsibility for the project. The grant will be made to the organization which can then, in turn, support the individual's project.
These grants are made available through SWAC and originate from the Community Arts Development program of the Maryland State Arts Council.
