7. Reminder: Annual Programming Grants 2010 closing date - 5:30 p.m, Thursday, 22 October 2009
The closing date for receipt of applications for Annual Programming Grants is Thursday 22 October 2009. This deadline is for organisations seeking funding through this programme for activities happening in 2010.
It is anticipated that decisions will be announced in January 2010.
The purpose of an Annual Programming Grant is to assist applicants with the cost of their artistic programme. Such grants are aimed at organisations that would not generally require financial assistance from the Arts Council to support on-going administrative costs. However, applicants may request some support for administrative costs directly related to their artistic programme of work.
Applications can be made using an online application system or by completing a paper form. The Arts Council encourages all organisations with Internet access to apply using the online application process. Organisations applying online will have an additional week - up to Thursday, 29 October 2009 - to provide their application's supporting documentation.
