The Arts Fund Board of Directors aims to provide meaningful grants, though typically, operating or capital grants do not qualify.
All eligible Stage 1 applications are reviewed and evaluated based on criteria, as noted below. Only those applicants from Stage 1, who are shortlisted, are invited to complete and submit the more detailed Stage 2 application form.
Refer to the Grant Application Guidelines for full details, and double check your Stage 1 and Stage 2 application forms for accuracy in budget figures, dates, signatures and deadlines.
Only one application per applicant is permitted.
For timelines and application deadlines, see Upcoming Deadlines
Please note: If you are a previous Arts Fund grant recipient, please see also Who Can Apply?
Previous grant recipients are eligible if prior grants are in good standing and if Final Review Reports have been completed, submitted and approved. If you need confirmation before proceeding, go to Contact Us.
