The Region of Waterloo Arts Fund Board of Directors is responsible for the overall management of the granting process, including assessing both Stage 1 and Stage 2 applications.
If a Board Member has declared a Conflict of Interest, or the Board wishes to augment a particular discipline and/or requires more expertise, an Artist-at-Large Advisor is invited to participate at both stages of an evaluation cycle.
All eligible applications are reviewed and evaluated based on criteria as noted in the Application Guidelines. Only those applicants from Stage 1 who are shortlisted are invited to complete and submit the more detailed Stage 2 application form.
For timelines and application deadlines, see our Upcoming Deadlines
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.
