IF YOU RECEIVE A GRANT
Congratulations on receiving an Arts Fund grant.
Once your project is approved for funding, a Grant Agreement between the Arts Fund and the grant recipient will be prepared. This is a legally binding document governing the terms and conditions of the grant. Individual artists and authorized organization personnel are responsible respectively for upholding the agreement. For a partnership or an unincorporated body, whoever signs is personally responsible.

The Arts Fund releases ninety percent (90%) of the total grant amount to the grant’s authorized representative within thirty (30) business days of receipt of the signed Grant Agreement and an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) form. The remaining ten percent (10%) of the grant amount is held back and only released once the project has been completed and the Final Report is received, reviewed and approved by the Final Report Review Committee. Under no circumstances does the amount paid to the grant recipient exceed the grant amount.
