The Arts and Culture Alliance serves as a designated agency of the Tennessee Arts Commission to administer Student Ticket Subsidy (STS) and Arts Build Communities (ABC) grants in East Tennessee. The STS program was created to provide ticket cost and transportation for students to attend approved arts and cultural events regardless of economic or social status. The ABC grant is administered on a per capita basis and funds are sub-granted for arts project support to non-profit organizations through an open competitive grant process.
